Gyangze Overview

Gyangze (aka Gyantse)at about 12956 feet between Lhasa and the 2nd largest city of Tibet Xigaze. It has lost some of its historical importance but still has much to offer travelers. It has retained its Tibetan character more than the bigger cities. The defensive Dzong (a fort ruin) can be seen from far away and is most impressive, and the walled monastery complex of Palkhor Choide uniquely contains presence of all four major sects of the Tibetan Buddhisms.
