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.

Travelled with Intrepid for the past 8 years and 10 trips, love the style and format, continue again next year to Antarctica. Would miss my peg less washing line

Our trip to Tibet was outstanding. The tour guide, Pema, was extremely knowledgeable and crafted the trip around the group's desires. Highly recommended!
