Gesar Hotel

Shigatse | Standard

On a bustling street in Shigatse’s southern outskirts, the Gesar Hotel is just a 10 minute drive from the famous Tashi Lhunpo Monastery.

Simple facilities and services, which are standard in this region’s larger commercial hotels, are given an individual twist with vibrant Tibetan colours and decor. Tradition infuses the rooms, where bold red, blue and gold jostle for wall space with paintings depicting folk stories and legends.

Though the communal areas are bright and busy, the guestrooms have a calmer feel. Wooden floors and cream walls are given a lift with bright flashes of handpainted wall art. Large windows bring in the crisp Himalayan light, and soft beds under an amber glow offer restful places to sleep.

Enjoy a range of homely, everyday dishes at the adjacent restaurant, where you can have a leisurely breakfast before setting out to explore the temples and mountain walks around Tibet’s second largest city.

After a full day, you can return to the simple sanctuary of the hotel to relax with a traditional dry sauna, or take a few serene moments to yourself in the rooftop teahouse.
