About 1.5 hours driving time will take you close to the Ganden Monastery, which ranks the first among the six largest monasteries of Gelugpa (Yellow hat sect). Ganden would be the best choice if you only have time for one monastery excursion outside Lhasa. It is an experience unlike other Gelugpa monasteries in Lhasa, with its stupendous views of the surrounding Kyichu Valley and fascinating kora.
