    The toilets at Samye

    Although they are not particularly dirty as Tibetan toilets go, the facilities at the Samye Guesthouse was most unpleasant because of their very powerful stench. If you can avoid, try to do so, although there aren’t really any alternatives.

    Make sure you wrap up warm for the boat journey across the Yarlung Tsangpo River to Samye, as the winds can make the journey quite chilli. You can also encounter rain if you are unlucky, and the boat is open, so there is no cover. We were lucky to have a bright, sunny day.

    Also bring (and apply) a high factor sun cream, as the sun is very strong and at this altitude the air is thin so it is easier to become sunburnt before you know it.
