Long bus ride to Gyantse. On arrival we visited the Kumbum Stupa, an archectural and spiritual jewel with 7 stories and 77 chapels. Afterwards we walked over to Palkhor Chode Monastery, where the monks graciously opened the chapel of the Tantric mahasiddhas for us, and allowed us to meditate in it for a half hour.
Overnight in the Hang Zi Jian Zang Hotel. Although it has a Chinese name, it is owned by a very sweet young Tibetan doctor.
