After two-year preparation, the Lhasa Architectural Guidelines was officially released on the morning of November 6. The guideline aims to carry on historical cultural heritage, elevate the image of Lhasa, and retain the city's unique geographical environment, cultural characteristics, architectural styles, and other elements. It provides style requirements and fundamental regulations for architectural design in the capital city of southwest China's Tibet.

Lhasa was one of the national historical and cultural cities in China. It is an international tourist city with plateau and ethnic characteristics. Questionnaires show that the three most attractive factors in Lhasa are its beautiful urban environment, profound history and culture, and rich ethnic characteristics. However, as of today, there is still some architecture in Lhasa that lack design. In terms of specific architectural design, there are some problems such as deficits of Tibetan elements and errors in Tibetan language use. 

Through comprehensive and on-site investigations, the project team systematically analyzed the evolution of architectural styles in Lhasa and formed an overall understanding of Lhasa's historical and cultural features. They widely listened to opinions of people of different backgrounds on current building management and integrated these with the current status and characteristics of Lhasa itself, and then specify the overall orientation of Lhasa's architectural style: a new Tibetan style appeal and landscaped ancient city.

Dear Mr. To***,

Thanks very much for your inquiry. Travelling to Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu. Firstly, we'll apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passport. Next, we'll send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passport, then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for Chinese Group Visa for you. When you board plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa, they'll only check your passport and Chinese Group Visa. Apart from Chinese Group Visa, you also need Tibet Permit, we'lll apply for Tibet Permit for you in Lhasa, and our guide will pick you up at Lhasa airport with your permit. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Thanks & Regards
