Tibetan road trip

Lhasa and Everest Basecamp aren’t the only places we visit in Tibet. There’s heaps to explore in between; Shigatse, Gyantse, the Karola glacier, Yamdrok Lake and many more.

During our hike in Shigatse we came across many friendly local people. Life seems different here compared to bustling Lhasa. We even witnessed a nice game of Sho, a Tibetan dice game. While the women are selling their goods at the local market, the men are having fun gambling with shells and cigarettes.

Up next: our adventure at Everest Basecamp. We made our own version of the classic ‘Climb high, sleep low’ –> Climb high, go low… What else would you expect with only half of the oxygen you’re used to reaching your lungs?
