A Tibet holiday will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable experiences of your life, no matter how much of the world you have travelled.
Indeed, here at Nepal Uncovered we believe this part of south Asia is a real must-visit, as are its neighbours Nepal and Bhutan. These destinations are still far from being regular inclusions on the itineraries of many travellers in Asia – but we think this is something that will soon change.
We run tours to Nepal and Bhutan that can have a visit to Tibet included, meaning you truly get to explore more of this part of the continent.
Whatever most interests you – ancient architecture, spirituality, stunning scenery or wildlife – you will find Tibet tours to suit you. Best of all, if you think there is anything missing, we can even tailor your getaway to reflect your personal requirements.
For a guide to what this mysterious land has to offer those who visit it, read on.
History, spirituality and scenery
One of the things that most attracts people to Tibet – now an Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China – is its rich history.
Indeed, many visitors feel that to come to Tibet is almost like landing on another planet, thanks to the ancient traditions and culture of the people, which continue to hold sway.
You can choose to set out from Nepal's capital Kathmandu and trek over the next few days over to Lhasa, the administrative capital of Tibet and one of the most culturally significant sites in the Buddhist faith.
The Potala Palace is just one of these and was once the chief residence of the Dalai Lama until the 1950s. You might also spot Jokhang Palace on Barkhor Square, which is considered the most sacred temple by many Tibetans.
However, you may find you're not in too much of a hurry to reach your destination, as the journey there will see you trekking along some of the world's highest roads, taking in the awe-inspiring scenery as you go.
Our Tibet classic journeys will take you through striking landscapes, past tiny rustic villages where the people are so welcoming, and up into the mountains where you can admire the outstanding views.
During your time here, you will quickly understand why this region is so enduringly popular with travellers and people keen to experience a different and more spiritual way of life.
