Nagarze Things to Do

    Tibetan child

    by extrajoce Written Mar 16, 2003

    This kid shows one of the rare signs of the influence of tourism. His village is along the main road going south-west from Lhasa, so he has obviously learned that it can be worth it trying his luck. The poverty in the villages is nonetheless striking.

    This was a lunch stop on my way from Lhasa to Shigatse. I probably would not have chose this place but my guide assured me it was good. The inside was much cleaner than I had expected. The wait staff were friendly. They must see a lot of foreigners. There were some other groups there as well with their tour guides.

    Favorite Dish: I had the pork and vermicelli noodles. It was ok. There wasn't a lot on the plate but did the job.

    This is an average small size super market. Very convenient and has everything you would need if you forgot something on your visit.

    What to buy: The Snickers bars were cheaper here the in the restaurant.

    What to pay: Less than any market in the US.

    Permanent snow

    by extrajoce Written Mar 16, 2003

    Favorite thing: Eternal snow is one of the visions one gets at such altitude, not far after the 5200m high Kamba La Pass. It was a change from all the barren mountains we had seen so far in this end of the summer. We could easily understand why the roads were so battered with rocks and rain drains.

    Storm rising above Lake Yamdrok Yamtso

    by extrajoce Written Mar 16, 2003

    Favorite thing: Lake Yamdrok Yamtso is a huge stretch of water which comes from rains and melting snow. This picture is my favorite one of Tibet as it captures some of the amazing contrasts and colours of this land perched on top of the world, right beneath the sky.

    Lake Yamdrok Yamtso

    by extrajoce Written Mar 16, 2003

    Favorite thing: This huge lake (634 sq km) is along the road from Lhasa to Gyangze, 4484m above sea level - one of the four holy lakes of Tibet. It is seen here from the Kamba La Pass, about 5200m high. It is very cold and windy up there, and the car's engine had a hard time getting started again, so enjoy the view and then dash off!
