The friendship highway accelerated us 1,750 meters to the Nepal border while covering many daunting spots in between. We moved through tortious lakes and Himalayan mammoths all the way to experience the sculpture-filled rooms of the Kumbum Chorten and fresco in the old-school town of Gyantse. The mysterious Pelkor Chode Monastery was the right limelight of Gyantse. We further trek down to explore the famous Shigatse and yes, not missing the tremendous great oratorical Tashilunpo Monastery. Following the itinerary, next target was set high and so was achieved. We crawled further to the Rongbuk valley close to the foot of Mt. Everest past the astonishing Pang La pass while staring and vowing at the great sights of four of the world’s seven highest peaks. Makalu, Lhotse, Everest, and Cho Oyu were genuinely breath-taking to explore.
Lastly, after Rongbuk we twirled through the usual Lhasa-Kathmandu roadway. Through the splendid Tingri plain dropping down 10,000 feet to the flourishing Nepal while wrapping the last awe-inspiring spots, austere Tibetan Plateau, and the indispensable Gyirong. On our way to Gyirong to Tingri, the map started with the breath-taking sights of high-sky Mountains wrapping with Shishapangma Peak and Pekutso Lake.
