A couple of hours after leaving Shigatse, we took a detour down a dusty, bumpy dirt road and arrived at Sakya Monastery, but at this point we felt that we had seen enough monasteries and there is a lot more to Tibet than visiting monasteries. In fact, we recommend that for your tour, you do not need to see every monastery that is suggested. Make sure you visit the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, and Drepung Monastery, but I think some of the others (and we didn’t see them all) can be skipped. Unless, you really enjoy visiting monasteries!!
