A view of Lhasa valley from the northwest, taken from the Drepung ('bras spungs) Monastery area. The Potala and Chakpori (lcags po ri) can be seen in the center of the image, with Norbu Lingka visible among the trees on the near side of Chakpori. A road cuts through the center of the valley along which people can be seen travelling. There are a number of parks and public spaces around the city, marked by areas where trees are more densely planted.
