Welcome to Tsetang
An important Chinese administrative centre and army base, Tsetang (རྩེད་ཐང་, 泽当, Zédāng) is the fourth-largest city in Tibet and the capital of huge Lhoka prefecture. The centre of town is a thoroughly modern city where you’ll find decent restaurants, midrange accommodation and a couple of internet cafes. The more interesting area is the small former Tibetan town, and the monasteries clustered there on the slope of Gangpo Ri, one of Ü’s four sacred mountains.
Most travellers use Tsetang as a base to visit outlying sites of the Yarlung and Chongye Valleys.
