Favorite thing: Gyangze is located in the southern part of the Tibetan Autonomous Region along the Nyang Qu river. The county covers an area of 3,800 square km at an average elevation of 4,100 meters. It consists of 18 townships, one town, 157 administrative villages with a total population of 62,000.
Gyangze Town is 4.5 square km large and has a population 10,800.
Although there live over 10,000 people here, it looks more rural than our 500 people hometown.

Favorite thing: Gyangze is not that big, and there are only two major sites in town. Go to the Dzong (fort)on top of the hill in the morning, when it is not too hot to climb the hill. Enjoy the museum and the view and go down to have lunch.
From 15:00 you can visit the monastery and the Kumbum which are on the same premisses.
Have dinner in town and after a good night sleep in a hotel you can be on your way to Xigatse for instance.
Fondest memory: The picture shows the Newari style eyes on the top floor of the Kumbum.
