Buddhism has shaped its cultural traditions for over 1,300 years. For centuries the mysterious Buddhist Kingdom of Tibet, locked away in its mountain fastness of the Himalaya, has exercised a unique hold on the imagination of the West. Tibet, the very name evokes feelings of awe and mystery. A mystic, mysterious land of ancient Buddhist culture, awesome landscapes, artistic monasteries and centuries-old caravan trails, Tibet is a destination out of the ordinary. Spiritual tradition, temples and monasteries, alpine lakes, rivers, and mighty snow clad peaks are just a few of the intoxicating wonders to be found in Tibet.
Tibet is, without a doubt, one of the most remarkable places to visit in Asia. It offers fabulous monastery sights, breathtaking high-altitude treks, stunning views of the worlds highest mountains and one of the most likeable peoples you will ever meet.
