Look at the houses, how beautifully they have decorated And you will see the flags of China everywhere. It feels different. It feels like we are in the Kullu Manali area of India, the area of Himachal.
It feels exactly like that here. Look at their dress, it looks so good. uncle is holding something in his hand, he keeps turning it around, he keeps He keeps turning it around and praying. He said, no, no, no, he will charge more. I said, I won't give a single rupee, go.
Don't act smart with me no, no, I won't give. Now he is insisting, I would have given him 50. No, no, 20. No, no, brother, I will drive.
Look, the streets are so narrow. Like in Delhi, people say India, India. But the people here, in Hindi, understand that this is India.
Hello everyone. I welcome you all to a new video. If you have seen the last video, then you will definitely know that we have come to Tibet. And it's only been two to two and a half hours. Today is our rest day.
But I am so excited to see Tibet. And to show you, I said, let's go, let's explore. And as you know, today is our rest day. So the good thing today will be that I can go alone and explore.
My guide will not be with me. How will it be from tomorrow, wherever I go, the guide will be with me. This is a great chance to explore it on my own How is Tibet, what is the first impression? I am very excited to tell you a lot about Tibet. I have to tell a lot of facts, I have to show a lot of things. It's going to be fun.
I got ready, brother, I didn't rest at all after taking a bath. I came, brother, took a bath, changed my clothes. I did some editing work. And look at this, brother, 4 star, luxurious hotel.
it is really good You can see, brother, the whole bed looks like Maharaja. You can look at the furniture Everything is very good. But the best thing here is the view You will get to see the Patola Palace in front of you.
You will get to see all those things in the videos. Look at the view So let's go down quickly and start exploring. Lahasa, the capital of Tibet. Finally, we are leaving our hotel.
Which is a very luxurious and very good hotel. And I just checked the rates here this is 8000 rupees for a day at the hotel. So if you take such an expensive tour, you will get so much facility. And my passport was kept here. You have to register here. First you have to get a permit.
Then you have to come here and register. So it's a very complicated process. You can't come here alone. It's a very restricted area.
You have to get a permit from the tour agency to come here. And you can't go around alone. I can only go to the area of 1-2 km around the city hotel. If I have to go out of the city. You can't go without a tour guide. If you talk about the first impression.
It is very developed. And you will get to see mountains all around. Look at this.
It's a very beautiful city. I have to tell you a lot of facts about Tibet. Let's go to the old town I will show you everything on the way. If we talk about the Tibet region. It is one of the highest regions.
The average altitude here is above 4000 meters. It is 4 km above the ground. And if we talk about the city of Lhasa. It is one of the highest capitals. If it was the capital of a country. It would be the highest capital of the world.
Currently the highest capital of the world, is capital of Bolivia. Lhasa is even higher than that but Lhasa is not the capital of any country. This is the capital of Tibet. If it was the capital of a country, it would be the highest.
If I talk about the first impression. It is very different from the other regions of China. Some shops like India can be seen here. But you can see cars here a lot of good ones there are some local shops here.
In many regions of China you don't get to see such an atmosphere which is available here So, let's cross a river from here and we have to go that way. Hello! Hello! Man, the city is very beautiful. And talking about the temperature, you can see the scorching sun, but the temperature is still 4 degrees.
And it's going to go up to minus 11 or minus 12 at night. looking at it, it doesn't look like the temperature will be like this here And, in a few days, all these mountains will be filled with snow. In January-February, it will be all white. There is not much snow right now. And look here, there are electric bikes.
And this blue bike, I have a pass for it. I can take it. But we will walk. It will be fun. And look, man, you will find people everywhere who keep praying like this. They keep moving their hands like this and keep praying. And look, Tibetan people look like this. And if we talk about their religion, they follow Tibetan Buddhism.
I have told you about this in the Hohot video. You just saw in the video, two people were showing their hands like this. As soon as I put the camera, they said, India, India. So, man, the people here in Hindi understand that they are Indians. In Hindi language, a lot of people basically say, Namaste, Dhanyavaad, Shukriya.
These people here say all this. And our guide and our driver who brought us here, he speaks complete Hindi. Then I came to the reception and he also speaks Hindi.
I was very shocked that the people of Tibet know Hindi very well. So, man, there are signals everywhere and people follow it very well. And one thing you will find here is that you will see Chinese flags everywhere. Everywhere, literally everywhere. The architecture of the entire building here is so different from the Chinese. You will see the architecture of China in the second region.
It is very different from that. And look, there is Patola Palace in front. We'll explore that later Today, we are going to Old Street. You can see such small tempo. They sell goods in it.
And you will see yaks everywhere. They worship yaks. And the monks here and the normal people here, most of them do not eat its meat.
They worship it. And here you can see sweet potatoes, corn, etc. The Buddhists eat yak meat. But the Tibetan Buddhists do not eat it.
Monks don't eat it I read it somewhere. I don't know how true it is. They make cheese out of it. People use it a lot. But the locals here do not eat meat it. You will know that by watching the videos and talking to the locals here.

They look very tensed. And their cheeks are very red because it's very cold here. As you can see, it's evening now. The temperature is going down.
The temperature which is going to be very cold at night is going to go up to -11 It will be fun to see the cold here.

But if foreigners sit, they charge a lot of money. we do not want to get scammed So many people are crossing the bridge. and see what is being seen here also a peacock feather here They are selling peacock feathers on the road.
You will see a lot of different things here. Let's go and see the view from the bridge. It will look very nice because my guide said that you have to rest on the first day. because, if you start walking on the first day itself, then, you will not get altitude sickness. because when you walk so much, you will feel breathless But I have already walked 4.5 km. So let's see what happens.
