Tibet Travel Guide

Tsang Province

If you're trying to find the majestic valleys and towering peaks that Tibet conjures up in the imagination, a journey through Tsang should be part of your itinerary. Travel agencies offer customized tours typically lasting five to eight days taking you to famous places: the brilliant blue waters of Yamdrok Tso Lake, the Dzong Fortress and Pelkor Chode Monastery in Gyantse,

the Tashilhunpo Monastery in Shigatse, and the Base Camp below the world's highest peak at Mount Everest.

The Tibetan province of Tsang includes some of the region's most important historic sites outside of Lhasa, but it's also rich in stunning scenery and dotted with small villages and terraced barley fields filled with brightly decorated yaks. This is your chance to get out of the city and experience rural Tibet, where life seems to have changed little over the past 100 years.
