The Friendship Highway is an important artery of commerce as it’s also Tibet’s most popular tourist route. Enjoy fabulous mountain scenery, visit mystical Buddhist Monasteries of Tashilungpo at Shigatse, the Kumbum Stupa at Gyantse.
Drive past the beautiful Turquoise Lake. This path gives you a glimpse of both the Tibetan and Nepali culture.
