Tibet lies at the center of Asia, with an area of 2.5 million square kilometers. The earth’s highest mountains, a vast arid plateau and great river valleys make up the physical homeland of 6 million Tibetans. It has an average altitude of 13,000 feet above sea level.
Tibet, a land veiled in secrecy for centuries, also referred to as “The Roof of the World,” with all its mystery is now open to tourists. Nepal provides one of the few windows in the long forbidden Tibet and its culture. Ever since Tibet was opened to the world in 1985, Nepal has become an easy and attractive gateway from which to explore its ancient lands and cultures. We operate tours to Tibet by breathtakingly beautiful overland trips and also by easier access by air. Heart rending dry plateau’s, green flatlands and diverse and unexplored cultures, make the journey worthwhile. Tibet is also harsh and primordial. Guarded by high passes and blessed by wispy prayer flags, it is often painted as a Shangri – La of cliff-hanging monasteries and a culture locked in eternal mysticism. A century ago, a visit to Tibet took stamina, nerve and a good deal of luck. Isolated by formidable geographic barriers and guarded by its government, today it is opened to everyone who wants to challenge themselves and enrich their world knowledge first handedly.
