Greet Mt. Everest every morning in Tibet!
What a place! Full of mystery and grandeur, Tibet, with its majestic Buddhist temples, unique spiritual legacy and amazing mountain abode leaves an enduring image in the minds of all visitors. Start by booking your Tibet package tour, you will see that this vast land to the north of the Himalayas is one of the most picturesque places you will ever see.
The weather in Tibet is not as difficult as some may think. Dry conditions prevail for most part of the year and in spite of the epithet ‘Land of Snows’, it snows only a very few times a year in Tibet which makes for nice conditions for tours of Tibet. Sunny days and clear skies are the norm making it ideal for trekking, hiking and other outdoor Tibet adventure tours on offer. Many visitors encounter altitude sickness here, so do remember to get acclimatised to the conditions before venturing into higher grounds. One way to do this, is to spend some time in or around your hotel in Lhasa.

Often called the ‘Roof of the World’, Tibet spans the world’s highest plateau and boasts an average altitude of 4000 m.
Tibet’s remoteness and isolation, the latter at one time zealously guarded by the Tibetans themselves and then imposed by the Chinese authorities, have added to the curiosity and interest in this enigmatic land. It was only during the 1980s that Tibet was finally thrown open to the outside world. Even though there are many restrictions on travel and foreigners need permits, there are so many things to see and do in Tibet. None of the restrictions or red-tape have stopped thousands of visitors from making a beeline for this holy land. The numerous Buddhist monasteries and religious places attract pilgrims from around the world as do the stunning Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar in western Tibet which Buddhists and Hindus consider sacred.
An autonomous region of China, Tibet is now going through a phase of modernisation and transition. Transport in Tibet and infrastructure has improved tremendously. Lhasa, the capital, in particular, has excellent connectivity; a train chugs in to Lhasa, up the hills from Qinghai − the world’s highest rail line! Tourism is actively promoted and you now find longer queues in front of Lhasa’s iconic Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple as well as other attractions throughout Tibet that you can visit on your Tibetan tour. However, the influx of the Chinese is fast changing the face of Tibet and many feel that it is in danger of losing the very character that makes it such an irresistible place.
On the bright side, Tibetans continue on their quest for spiritual enlightenment in a simple, dignified manner that is eye opening and inspiring. A Tibetan sojourn is sure to have a profound influence on the lives of most visitors.
Tibet is an incredible place that could have a profound affect on your life. Why not continue onward and visit neighbouring destinations around Tibet, such as Kathmandu and Pokhara in Nepal, Sikkim and Darjeeling in India, and the Kingdom of Bhutan.
