Description: Lhasa Stadium
One of the highest stadiums in the world (3,490m above sea level) was built as part of a brand new district in Lhasa, Tibet. The new district with offices and a modern railway station occupies the remote southern bank of Lhasa river, while historically the city lies north.
The stadium holds 20,000 people and is part of a larger complex, also containing an indoor arena for 4,000 people and a yak museum. With 69,000sqm of space for use the complex is by far the largest in Tibet. It took 735 million Yuan to deliver it in late 2014.
