Tibet, the sacred land of myths and mysteries, is a unique destination for both culture and adventure enthusiasts. Brown rolling hills, hidden valleys, artistic ornate monasteries, wrecked and abandoned forts, centuries old caravan trails, exceptional tradition and breathtaking scenery await all the travelers to the roof of the world.
Tibetan plateau covering 1.23 million sq km is linked to the south by the 2500km long Himalayas and to the west by the Karakoram. With an average height of 4,000 meters above sea level, Tibet encompasses some of the world’s highest mountains. Mt. Everest (8848m), the world’s highest peak rises abruptly on the Tibet – Nepal border. Four mountains exceed altitudes of 8,000 meters and thirty eight mountains exceed altitudes of 7,000 meters.
Lhasa, the heart and soul of Tibet, century’s long abode of the Dalai Lamas and object of devout pilgrimage, is still a city of wonders, despite the large-scale encroachments of Chinese influence. There are lots of scenic memorable spots and historical attractions, among them Potala Palace, the residence of the Dalai Lamas serves as a symbolic focus for Tibetan hopes of self-government, Norbulingka.
