After an insightful sightseeing tour in Kathmandu, you will take a flight to Tibet – the Forbidden Land.
Just below the Himalayas, the broad stretch of Tibet is a land of myths, mountains and monasteries. Tibet is historic, exotic and adventurous in equal measure. It is the highest region in the world with the Himalayan peaks at its backdrop. The north face of Mt. Everest however dwarfs all other peaks. Tibet is also famous for Mt. Kailash, considered holy by both the Hindus and Buddhists. You can explore the shrines and monasteries in and around Lhasa including the traditional seat of the Dalai Lama, the Potala Palace. The word “Shangri-La” is used to describe Tibet and truly so, each part of Tibet confirms this description. The Tibetan people cling proudly to their traditions and cultural identity just like the whole region of Tibet retains its natural splendor.
Tibet is one of the most interesting, remote and undeveloped part of the world. Although facilities for tourist were limited for a long time, reasonable standards have been achieved now. A trip to Tibet is not for the one who doesn’t consider adventure a part of travel. Traveling can be hard, adventurous and often unpredictable but rewarding nevertheless. It is a land of ageless spiritual traditions, ancient monasteries and beautiful and sometimes mystical lakes and rivers. In most parts of Tibet, the skyline is dominated by snow peaks. Buddhism is at a heart of Tibet. The Tibetans have a long and glorious religious history which infiltrates every aspect of their social life. This has also given them a distinctive form of religious arts which makes Tibet a wonderful blend of history, culture, art and nature.
