Trip Overview

TIBET-from north of the Himalaya, Tibet beckons and is a magical country of snow-capped peaks soaring to dizzying heights. Tibet still exerted a strong pull on the imagination of the world and this program is very ideal to first time visitors. Tibet’s immense, stark, grand plateau, its warm cheerful people and its unique cheerful Buddhist tradition, imbued with mysticism, appeared to many the embodiment of the mythical Shangri-La. Travel to early Tibet required a good deal of courage and luck, and for those hardy explorers and adventures at the turn of the century, “but now much easier then as we thought” Lhasa once the forbidden city truly epitomized the ultimate travel destination. Tibet’s remoteness and its haunting beauty continue to captivate the imagination of travelers. Tibet is as landmark of the Temples, monasteries, chortens and villages, arid high plateaus and turquoise lakes are often exceptional complete panorama of Tibet.
