Tibet

'Shangri La', 'the Rooftop of the World' - locked away in its Himalayan fortress, Tibet has long exercised a siren's hold on the imagination of the West. Tibetans are used to hardship, and despite the disastrous Chinese occupation, they have managed to keep their culture and humour alive. The roof of the world is an unforgettable land of curious nomads, mysterious gompas and vast breath-taking panoramas. In Lhasa, long the Forbidden City, experience the timeless and most holy Jokhang temple and see the legendary eighth-wonder Potala Palace, Depong, Sera and many more….

Samye is deservedly the most popular destination for travellers in the Ü region. The monastery, in the middle of the sandy Samye valley and approached via a beautiful river crossing, has a magic about it that causes many travellers to stay longer than they had intended. It was Tibet's very first monastery and has a history that spans over 1200 years.

Visitors on vacation to ethnic Tibet can discover Buddhist monasteries and pilgrimage sites, as well as trekking routes through some of the most stunning mountain scenery in the world. In addition there is Mt. Kailash the most sacred place in Asia.
