Very good views over the valleys. The vendors could be a nuisance, but then we thought of the big effort they would have made to get here just to sell a few trinkets and photos of their goats and Tibetan Mastiffs! We bought a brass singing bowl for half the Lhasa prices.

From the Gambala pass you can have a sensational view of the Yamdrok lake and Mt Nachen Khangsar and other side you can have a very nice view of Yarlung river gorges
