Shigatse

A two hour drive from Gyantse, Shigatse is the capital of the central Tsang region, and Tibet's largest city. Long a political rival to Lhasa, Shigatse is the seat of the Panchen Lamas, the second-highest lamas in Tibet, after the Dalai Lama. Like Lhasa, Shigatse has an old town, with a range of rambling alleys, compounds, and monasteries, as well as a newer, more modern enclave.
