What to say about this hotel, actually it is horrible and dirty, the carpet is disgusting, you don't want to walk barefoot on this. Hot water only between 19.00 - 07.00.

This hotel is typical of many in Tibet. On our travels we found that the Tibetan owned hotels were floundering in the light of restrictions on foreign travellers.

The hotel was reasonably comfortable and clean. Not many choices in this town. It is very close to the monastery (about 1 block away) and half a block to the main street of the town . The food at the hotel was good, and had western food in addition to Tibetan and Chinese.

“Keep your torch on you all the time - power outages are frequent and unpredictable. Make sure to make the short hike to visit the nunnery up the mountain - its wonderful with great views Be careful where you go walking locally - there is a large militarised part of town where tourists are not permitted to go - check with your guide”
