The landscape of Lhasa is particularly beautiful and defined by the expansive Himalayan mountain range, ornate temples and the traditional architecture of the Potala Palace and Tibet museum. A number of tours of the city, surrounding countryside and specific buildings are a great way to get to know the city's history and can be enjoyed by tourists and expats alike. Lhasa's economy includes a wide range of industries including textiles, handicrafts, the mining of copper, lead and zinc with future growth focused on tourism and the services industry. The city is also concerned with geothermal heat extraction, new methods of mineral mining and there is a major five-story brewery on the outskirts of the city.
