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.
Strictly speaking this is not a trek but a driving expedition. A trip to Tibet is not for the faint hearted, the travelling can be hard, adventurous and often unpredictable. The road is often very dusty with the possibility of delays due to snow.
With Tibet's high altitude, travellers 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.
