Tibet better known as “the Roof of the World”is a well-known tourist destination in China with abundant historical and natural resources. As located on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau at the southwest frontier of China, far from the so called “classic route”, for most of people, Tibet is the name leading to a place that filled with mystery, legends and secrets. And such unique charm attracts millions of people from home and abroad every year. It is one of the world’s most extraordinary destinations and there is adventure indeed hidden around almost each and every corner. It’s snow covered plateaus are the highest in the world and apart from Everest, which Tibetans see from ‘the other side’, many mountains are over 15000 feet. Lhasa, at (3590 meters), is Tibet’s religious, cultural and economic center. The 1000 room Potala Palace physically dominates Lhasa City. Tibetan lives are woven inherently with the active practice of religion. Tibet is the centre of Lamaism Buddhists. Dharma Gurus, the incarnations of Lord Buddha, once ruled the country and they built the great monasteries like Tashilunpo, Ganden, Drepung, Sera, Jokhang and of course the Potala Palace. Lamaism has different sects and each sect has its own prominent monasteries. A land of ancient Buddhist culture, awesome landscapes, artistic monasteries, exotic cities, hidden valleys and centuries old caravan trails, Tibet offers a totally different experience. Mt. Kailash which represents Lord Shiva as believed by the Hindus and Mansarovar, a holy lake at plateaus are the centre of attractions. Tibet is the destination of ultimate thrill seekers. Kathmandu is the gateway to Tibet and there is easy access to Tibet from Kathmandu. AlpineTrav Trteks and Expedition manages the Tibet tour in reasonable cost.
