Welcome to TIBET – a land so rich in culture and tradition steeped in religion along the far flung unique landscape, aptly called the Roof of the World. Let the age old Tibetan mysteries cast an enchanted spell on you which holds you in thrill and excitement.
The first part of the tour takes you over the majestic Himalaya offering you the long cherished breathtaking view of the Himalayan ranges including MT EVEREST (8,848m) by an hour long Trans-Himalayan flight from KATHMANDU to LHASA.
The 2nd part brings you so close to the Shangri-la of TIBET making you feel yourself as being a part of a rich tapestry of the unique culture woven with legends, myths, rituals and festivals when you are in LHASA: cultural capital of TIBET.
LHASA offers incredible sites like POTALA PALACE (majestic winter palace of Dalai Lama dominantly located in the central part of Lhasa city), JOKHANG TEMPLE (8th century temple of Avaloketeshwar), BARKHOR BAZAAR (typical Tibetan downtown still intact with its originality and flavour), DREPUNG & SERA monasteries (the biggest monasteries in Tibet still vibrant with hundreds of monks and lamas) and so on.
Your memories of this holiday in TIBET is enriched by the lingering impression of the most lavishly decorated huge monasteries & temples, saffron coloured monks, ever smiling people & their typical lifestyle and above all, the challenging Himalayas.
