Tibet remains one of the most interesting, remote and undeveloped parts of the world, situated at an average elevation of 5000m [16000 ft] above sea level. Its limited tourist facilities are now approaching a reasonable standard.
A trip to Tibet is not for the faint hearted, the travelling can be hard, adventurous and often unpredictable.
Due to Tibet’s high altitude, travelling with a history of heart, lung or anemia problems should consult a doctor before considering a visit.
This trip offers a spectacular insight into the life and culture of these friendly people – from the ancient monasteries with chanting monks, to the tranquil shores of the Turquoise Lake Yamdrock coupled with the breathtaking Trans-Himalayan flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa.
