Continue acruss the arid Tibetan Plateau to Gyantse, at the head of the old trading route to India and Shigatse, home to the famous Tashihunpo Monastery and the Panchen Lama.. The final leg or your extraordinary journey descends througt an impressive gorge, then winds through the terraced hillsides of Nepal to Kathmandu.
