    Xegar, a new Chinese commune built at the foot of the ruins of Xegar Dzong, 7 kms from the main road. With a population of 3000, it is the centre of this large and remote area and a base from which expeditions to Mt. Everest and other peaks are launched.

    Shigatse is situated in the southwest of the Tibet Autonomous Region where Nyangchu River joins the Yarlung Tsangpo River. Shigatse is the second biggest town in Tibet and it is the center of transportation and distribution of agriculture and husbandry products from the southeastern part of Tibet. “Shigatse” in Tibetan means the “Estate that fulfills one’s Wishes.”

    Tashilhumpo monastery is believed to be the most beautiful monastery in Tibet, founded in 1417. The most amazing in this monastery is the giant statue of the Maitreya (Future Buddha) erected by the 9th Panchen Lama in 1914 and took 4 years for its establishment. Fourth Panchen Lama’s funeral stupa was also built in 1662 which is one of the major attractions in the monastery.

    The famous Kumbum, a combination of pagoda and stupa arts, stands with nine storeys with its 108 doors and 77 chapels contaning clay sculptures and various murals. The pagoda is said to have 100,000 images of Buddha either sculptured or painted.

    Phalkor monastery is the next door monument to the Kumbum. It was founded in 1418. Its role is unique on the Buddhism in Tibet as it represents all the three sects of Tibetan Buddhism: Gelugpa, Sakkyapa and Bhutan.

    Yamdrok Lake is one of the biggest and beautiful lakes in Tibet. We pass by this lake with about 2 hours drive along its bank. Yamdrok means turquoise in Tibetan language. In fact, the lake looks exactly as beautiful as turquoise blue during the good weather days.

    The Brahmaputra River is one of the last largely free-flowing rivers emanating from the Tibetan Plateau. Originating as the Yarlung Tsangpo River, it flows across southern Tibet through the Himalayas and into India and Bangladesh before merging with the Ganges and emptying into the Bay of Bengal.
