While there you will experience Tibetan rural culture also. Then visit Tibet's second largest city Shigatse, which is the most important farming area in Tibet. You will also visit the Thashilhunpo Monastery (the seat of the Panchen Lamas. Inside there is a huge gilded bronze Buddha statue as well as many other beautiful statues).
