Centuries of isolation have lent the kingdom of Tibet a deep sense of spirituality and mysticism. Once upon a time you could only get there after conquering treacherous terrain and fierce warrior monks, but now – despite the complex political situation – Tibet’s open for travellers to explore. Surround yourself with smoke, incense and the murmuring of the faithful in the country’s endless temples and monasteries and experience giddy Everest views. Cross high-altitude passes, twist through towering peaks past plodding yaks, and discover contemporary Tibetan life – a mix of pilgrims and pop music, monks and mobile phones.
Our Tibet trips score an average of 4.86 out of 5 based on 28 reviews in the last year.
Check the accommodation on basic trips, it's not great.

Because Buddhism is so important to the people of Tibet, this particular tour gave me an understanding of their culture that I could not have gotten on my own or with a traditional tour group. Go with Pema! Pema is AWESOME!
