We started early in the morning, with the same guide and team mates. It would be a long and tiring full day journey from Lhasa to Shigatse (read my previous blog on Lhasa here).
Shigatse is the second largest city in Tibet and situated at 3900 mtrs which is slightly higher altitude than Lhasa at 3656 mtrs, the capital and largest city in Tibet. We would pass through the mighty Yarlung Tsangpo river, Yamdrok Lake, Karola glacier and Gyantse monastery on our journey to Shigatse.

We started sharp at 8:30 in the morning in our cozy tempo traveler.
