I had an amazing ride out of Lhasa to the hilltop where Ganden Monastery is. Such beautiful scenery on the way and the first opportunity I have to see several groups of yaks in the fields, on the road . . . Anyone not able to go to Gyantse, Shigatse, Yamdrok-Tso Lake and elsewhere in Tibet should definitely make Ganden Monastery a must to visit. It definitely gives you a little insight as to how the countryside of Tibet is like. Of course not quite the same views but . . .when time is short and altitude is a problem Ganden Monastery is still doable. This, my last day in Tibet and my 1st and only kora. It takes about 1 to 1 1/2 hr but so exilarating and so emotional once again
I have my last diner at The Original Crazy Yak Restaurant and take in a second Cultural show. This time I try the buffet and it is a mixture of Chinese, Tibetan and Indian food and all very tasty.
