Monasteries of Tibet

Trip Overview

Tibet is country of monastery landmark and mysterious places are rare to be found in the world,Tibet is an exception and literally the highest nation on earth. Nearly half the world’s population lives downstream from Tibet with five of Asia’s great rivers including the Indus, Mekong and Brahmaputra having their headwaters in the “Roof of the world”.

Combine snow-capped Himalayan Peaks touching cobalt blue skies, and majestic turquoise colored lakes with the spiritual energy of country that embraced Buddhism in the 8th century AD. Since then, a paramount objective of Tibetan culture has been the cultivation of a good heart and a calm, clear mind. Embrace life in the same way Tibetans view Mount Everest, “From the other side”.
