Chakpori Hill

Altitude: 3725 meters

Chagpori or Chakpori hill is a spirit-mountain of Vajrapani within the city of Lhasa in Tibet. It is south of the Potala and just to the left when one is facing the Potala. It is considered to be one of the four holy mountains of central Tibet. It is the best place to shoot the Potala Palace. Every early morning, there are a lot of shutterbugs waiting there to shoot the Potala during the sunrise.

Chagpori was the site of the monastic medical college of the same name founded there by Sangye Gyatso in 1696. It remained an important medical institution in Tibet and Central Asia up until the mid-Twentieth century. Hence, the Chakpori hill is called “Medicine King Hill” in Chinese.
