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 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 4.88 out of 5 based on 32 reviews in the last year.
This was a fascinating trip through Tibet, combining towns, stunning scenery (including the tallest mountain in the world) & the ever present influence of Tibetan Buddhism. If you have been considering Tibet as a destination, don’t delay as things are changing rapidly. Go now!
