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.

Tibet is one of a kind for anyone interested in Buddhism, gorgeous landscapes and kind people. Intrepid's itinerary will take you to the key places and if you are lucky enough to have Kangzhu as your tour leader you would have an unforgettable trip and leave feeling you have been Tibetan for a few days in your life.

Tibet Uncovered was a trip of a lifetime that I managed to take off my 'bucket list' it was everything you wanted from a cultural immersion trip. Stepping out into an environment so different from the 'norm' it was an experience of wonders from start to finish.
