When drive back to Lhasa from Shigatse, we will not pass Gyantse anymore but along the Brahmaputra river that is the most important and highest river in Asia. The views along the river is just impressive. 

 
The Brahmaputra, called Yarlung Tsangpo River in Tibet, is a transboundary river and the highest major river in the world. It originates at Tamlung Tso lake in western Tibet, southeast of Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar,it flows across southern Tibet to break through the Himalayas in great gorges,including the Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon.
 
 In Tibet the rivercourse is approximately 1200 kilometres long and 300 kilometres wide. The valley descends from 4500 metres above sea level to 3000 metres. As it descends, the surrounding vegetation changes from cold desert to arid steppe to deciduous scrub vegetation. It ultimately changes into a conifer and rhododendron forest. The tree line is approximately 3,200 metres.Sedimentary sandstone rocks found near the Tibetan capital of Lhasa contain grains of magnetic minerals that record the Earth's alternating magnetic field current.The basin of the Yarlung River, bounded by the Himalayas in the south and the Gangdisê and Nyainqêntanglha Mountains in the north, has less severe climate than the more northern (and higher-elevation) parts of Tibet, and is home to most of the Autonomous Region's population (Lhasa City, Shigatse, Lhoka, and Nyingchi Prefectures).
