“Good prices on Tibetan souvenirs”
Review of Ganbala Mountain

Attraction details
Reviewed September 5, 2016

This is a road-side turn out near the summit of the road between Lhasa and Yamdrok lake.

There are several vendors selling their wares. Prices here are surely better than you will find in Lhasa, however, selection is quite poor. We bought a nice rustic looking prayer wheel at about half the cost of something similar in Lhasa. Also you will see several Tibetan Mastiff dogs on display for you to take photos with (for a fee of course)

There are lots of vendors everywhere, selling Tibetan handcrafts, accessories and scripture flags. That did not take away the beauty of the scenery, though. Talking to the local vendors was fun actually.

Many of them had yaks and mastiffs, animals which I had only read on books before. We took many pictures of them.

The highest altitude of Ganbala is 4,280m.

Anyone driving from Lhasa to Gyantse will certainly make an almost compulsory stop at Ganbala Pass (4.796m). The scenic and modern highway crosses the Gambala Mountains, with superb views of "Yamdrok Yumtso Lake". A quick stop, a few pictures and more memories to take home. Enjoy!

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
