Description

A view of the Kyichu River with the Potala and Chakpori visible in the distance. This photograph seems to have been taken from the north. The stonework flood defences that line the banks of the river are visible on the left. The high mountains encircling Lhasa can be seen in the distance with low clouds touching their peaks. Forested parkland can be seen on the left hand side of the river

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
