Tibet travel guide

Tibet - Ü (Chapter)

9th Edition Mar 2015

This is the Ü chapter from Lonely Planet’s Tibet guidebook.

Ü is the Tibetan heartland and - due to its proximity to Lhasa - the first taste of rural Tibet that most visitors experience. A 'Tibet-in-miniature', it has just about all the landscapes you'll find across the plateau; from shifting sand dunes and wide rivers to soaring peaks and alpine forests.

  • taking a scenic river journey across the Yarlung Tsangpo to the spectacular circular com-plex of Samye, Tibet’s first monastery
  • maps
  • visiting Yarlung Valley, the cradle of Tibetan civilisation, stopping at the iconic Yumbulagang, ancient Trandruk Monastery and the ruins of Rechung-puk
  • transport
  • squeezing, dragging and pushing yourself through the sacred cave complexes of Drak Yangdzong, an adventurous overnight pilgrim destination
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Northern Ü, Tsurphu Monastery, Nam-tso, Lhundrub, Talung, Reting Monastery, Road to Drigung Til Monastery, Drigung Til Monastery, Tidrum Nun-nery, Yarlung Tsangpo Valley, Gongkar, Dranang Monastery, Mindroling Monastery, Namseling Manor, Dorje Drak Monastery, Drak Yangdzong, Samye Monastery, Around Samye, Ön Valley, Tsetang, Yarlung Valley, and Chongye Valley.
