LHASA , TI­BET, CHINA

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Escape -

Ever the epit­ome of peace­ful sanc­tu­ar­ies, Ti­bet holds a spe­cial spot in the hearts of soul-search­ing trav­ellers be­sot­ted with the Hi­malayas. Chart your­self higher on the scale of seren­ity by vis­it­ing Lhasa, a peace­ful town on the north bank of the Lhasa River. Be­fore you set out to climb 3,700 me­tres up the Red Moun­tain to visit the his­tor­i­cal Po­tala Palace (the former win­ter abode of the 14th Dalai Lama), be sure to charge your bat­ter­ies at the St. Regis Lhasa Re­sort, from which the view of the Hi­malayan sky makes for a heav­enly dose of glit­ter­ing teal. www.star­wood­ho­tels.com/stregis
