There are some places you encounter when you travel that may not stand out as particular highlights of the trip, and certainly would never be your final destination, but make a good stopping point to catch your breath on the way. Shigatse is one of those places. Located at the confluence of the Brahmaputra and Nyang rivers, Tibet’s second-largest city stands at an elevation of 3,840 meters, on a flat terrain encircled by mountains. This hub is the ideal spot to overnight on the way to Mt. Everest Base Camp or Kathmandu.
