Yamdrok Lake, one of Tibet's four holy lakes and home to wrathful deities
Johkang Temple & Barkhor Street the spiritual heart of Tibet for 1300 years, "the continuous waves of awestruck pilgrims prostrating themselves outside are a testament to its timeless allure."

Gyantse Kumbum& Palcho Monastery , Gyantse's top 1 must visit
"This 32m-high chörten, with its white layers trimmed with decorative stripes and crown-like golden dome, is awe-inspiring. The inside is no less impressive, and in what seems an endless series of tiny chapels you’ll find painting after exquisite painting (kumbum means ‘100,000 images’)."
