Lhasa (拉萨) is the capital of the Tibet autonomous region in China.
It is possible to visit Lhasa on 3-7 day tours from Kathmandu, Nepal, but there have been reports of tours that do not allow enough time for visitors to adjust to the dramatic altitude change resulting in some travelers sufferring altitude sickness being left off along the way (without any refund, of course).
Lhasa is 3650 meters (about 12 000 feet) above sea level, so there is considerable risk of altitude sickness, especially if you fly in from a much lower altitude so your body does not have time to acclimatise.

 Lhasa Apsos: What's Good About 'Em? What's Bad About 'Em?
The AKC Standard, showing great restraint, calls the Lhasa Apso "chary with strangers." Indeed he is. With his acute senses, keen observation skills, and distrust of anything new or different, he takes his watchdog responsibilities seriously -- some individuals are not just "all bark" and may be very willing to bite.
Lhasa Apsos have an independent mind of their own and are definitely not pushovers to raise and train.
Many Lhasas are quick to react to teasing, and even to the normal clumsiness that comes with small children (accidental squeezing of their ears or pulling of hair or stepping on their paw).

In concert, Lhasa was by turns both shy and generous, and she gave a lot of herself away to her audiences.
