        ... top we returned to Tsetang for for a couple of hours rest then lunch at a local restaurant where their fried rice was the best ever.

        The second last visit of the day was visit to Yumbu Temple built on the top of a rather high hill as there were too many steps for Gwen and I decided to enlist the help of a couple of ponies both up and down for the princely sum of Aus $16 or 80 yuan Chinese. We quite enjoyed the ride ...
