To accommodate the surge of visitors in peak tourist season, Potala Palace Scenic Area has extended its opening time to run from 07:30 to 18:40, compared with 09:00 to 16:40 in low season.

On the other hand, from July, Potala also started to limit the number of daily visitors to 4, 000 to reduce the potential damage to this lumber-and-dirt structure. About 100 visitors are admitted to the palace every 20 minutes and stay for most 1 hour.
