Tibet, the very name evokes feelings of awe and mystery. A land of ancient Buddhist culture, stunning landscapes, artistic monuments and centuries-old caravan trails, Tibet is a destination out of the ordinary. Famed as the Roof of the World, the Tibet Autonomous Region of China, known as the roof of the world, has a remarkable concentration of lofty mountains: the Kunlun Mountains of Central Asia to the north, the Karakoram Range to the west and the Himalayan Range to the south. Lakes, monasteries, fortresses and small hamlets are spread throughout the region. The land is deeply steeped in religion. No wonder, Tibet, once a forbidden land, has captured the human imagination from time immemorial and has also remained a source of spiritual inspiration for sages and ordinary devotees alike.
A tour to Tibet offers you a unique experience of breathtaking landscapes and cultural wonders. You can see nomads herding their yaks in the countryside, pilgrims worshipping at some of the most venerated Buddhist temples and shrines in Asia and other unique sights, sounds, colors and customs. While wandering around the cities and towns of the plateau, you will encounter vendors with stalls decorated by Tibetan prayer flags, jewel-encrusted yak skulls, traditional Tibetan dresses, Tibetan thangkas, Tibetan mandalas and, of course, the Tibetan mastiff just to name a few.
