Dazzling landscapes surrounding Gyatze Dzong

The well-preserved exterior of the Gyantse Dzong in Tibet may just well be transported out of a Game of Thrones scene into the outer corner of China, yet the truth is far more realistic than depicting the landscape of this popular television series.
Erected at the end of the 14th century, the construction of this fortress outside the town of Gyantse commenced around 800AD before a Tibetan prince finalized it with courtyards, private residences, and fortified the walls against intruders from near and far. A small museum brings forward its turbulent history.
Just imagine how amazing this site will look when it slowly appears behind the horizon after leaving Lhasa and enter the realm of vast landscapes and Dzongs of his calibre.
