A mysterious kingdom hidden in north east of Himalayas, Tibet is the highest region on Earth home to Tibetan people. It is truly one of the last untouched lands in the world that retain its wild yet enchanting natural beauty, thousand-old Buddhist traditions and unique folk custom.
Lhasa, Tibet’s fabled capital and a Mecca for all Tibetan Buddhists, is rich in spiritual and cultural sites, with a plethora of time-honored shrines. Potala Palace, an outstanding UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a trove of Tibetan Buddhist art and architecture, and houses numerous murals, sculptures, Thangka, sacred manuscripts… Steep yourself in the timelessness of Tibet’s peaceful spiritual atmosphere as you see pilgrims praying in front of Jokhang Temple. Of course, Tibet is famous for a breathtaking setting of crystal holy lakes, deep valleys, remote high altitude deserts and epic snow-capped mountain vistas under pure blue sky. For adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts, your journey to Tibet is not complete without a Mt. Everest touch.
