Gyantse, a typical Tibetan town, is a small town south west of Lhasa. It covers an area of 3,771 square kilometers with total population of 67,000. It is one of the few places where the modernization has not changed much. It is easy to spend a couple of days in Gyantse. Gyantse is well known because of its Fortress, the Dzong Fort, a very special building, the Kimbum Stupa, and a monastery, the Pelkor Chode. The reason why people build a town there is the trade of wool. The location was good because Gyantse was on the road to India.
