Tibet is famous for being “the roof of the world” with an average elevation of 4000 meters. Its one of the world’s most extraordinary destinations where adventure lurks around almost every corner. Lhasa, the capital, lies high in the barren wilderness of the Tibetan mountains and Tibet’s valley bottoms are higher than the highest mountains in most other countries! The snow-covered plateaus are the highest in the world and, including Mount Everest, which Tibetans see from ‘the other side’, the majority of mountains are over 15000 feet.
This unique land is referred to as the real Shangri-la, the forbidden land, the roof of the world and the holy land of your innermost desire. Tibet has towering snow capped mountains, scattered herds of yak and nomads on the plateau, spectacular monasteries, tranquil lakes and transparent blue skies. Just a few of the reasons Tibet is a “must see” place.
From the Potala Palace and Jokhang Monastery, to the rich, ancient culture and the majestic mountains, Tibet really is a place to stir the senses and nourish the soul.
