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 has been a lifelong dream destination for me, and it certainly lived up to my expectations! Clocking eyes on the Potala Palace for the first time, and seeing dawn break over Mt Everest, will be moments I will long remember. Incredible! Not to mention all those glorious mountains, monasteries, monks and moody landscapes. After travelling the globe for many years, I am not quite sure why it took me so long to get here. It was however, as they say, worth the wait.
