Lhasa, literally meaning Holy-Land, is the heart and soul of Tibet, has history of more than 1,300 years.Gyantse, 254km south-west of Lhasa, is famed for the Kumbum – the largest stupa in Tibet. Shigatse has been the seat of the Panchen Lama, who is traditionally based in Tashilhunpo Monastery.
The wonderful part of this trip is to see the different faces of the Himalaya Range: on the north side, the ever-stretching snow mountains and atrocious weather make it an inhospitable land. While the south side of the Himalaya embraces luxurious shades of green, with waterfalls and cascades flushing almost everywhere. You can do nothing but marvel at this Mother Nature's masterpiece
