Adventures in Tibet

Isolated from the outside world for centuries and only relatively recently opened to Western travellers, the Himalayan kingdom of Tibet is a magical and mysterious place. Often referred to as the ‘Roof of the World’, the feeling of an isolated nation is only enhanced by its surroundings, towering mountain ranges on all sides with the peaks averaging a height of over 4,000m! Tibet holidays are made for adventure!

An intensely Buddhist land, its richly decorated monasteries and temples testify to the deep-rooted faith of the Tibetan people, and make for an intriguing place to explore. The imposing Potala Palace in Lhasa is the country’s crowning architectural glory, while the award for natural splendour goes without doubt to the breathtaking mountains. The Tibetan people themselves are excellent hosts, known for their friendliness, hospitality and willingness to chat over a good cup of yak butter tea!

There is much to discover on an adventure holiday to Tibet, Lhasa, the spiritual and cultural centre of the country, Tsedang and Samye in the Yarlung Valley and the ancient city of Shigatse. You should also take a unique visit to Everest Base Camp, travelling by horse and cart with the towering north face of Everest looming above!
