Is it worthwhile to visit Shigatse? I want to take a Tibet tour. I know that Lhasa is a must to go. How about other cities? Pls advice. We only have 5 days, 6 people.

Shigatse is the second largest city in Tibet, just next to Lhasa, also enjoying the long history. Shigatse features its own city sightseeing. Besides, you can also see many famous tour attractions on the way to Shigatse from Lhasa, so I suggest you to add the Shigatse tour. I have made a 5-day tour itinerary including Shigatse for your reference.
