Perched high on the remote Himalayan plateau, Tibet is known as the roof of the world. This spiritual outpost is famed for its holy capital, Lhasa, strewn with sacred monasteries and temples, the colorful nomadic tribespeople and the soaring peaks of the Himalayas. Wildly beautiful and unfathomably photogenic, follow in the footsteps of the pilgrims and uncover the wonders of Tibet.
Located on the highest plateau on earth, mystical Tibet is a land of intense spirituality and wild, humbling beauty. The holy capital of Lhasa is home to the ancient Jokhay Temple, the spiritual heart of Tibet, and the fortress walls of the Potala Palace. High altitude treks through mountain passes will be rewarded with views of turquoise lakes and nomadic shepherds herding yaks across the vast plains. Sip yak butter tea with friendly Tibetan locals, encounter chanting monks in remote monasteries and gaze in wonder at the north face of Mount Everest as you journey across this wild, sacred land.
