Tibet Tours and Travels
With an average elevation of around 4,900 meters, Tibet is the highest place on earth. It is located in the south western region of China and is home to around 5.4 million people. Tibet depends largely on agriculture and animal husbandry for sustaining its economy.
Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) is the official name given to Tibet. Despite political unrest, the place has a calming effect on the mind. Its serene environment and stately monasteries take away much stress from the journey. As one travels further, he comes face to face with the vastness of its unexplored natural beauty. Popular tourist attractions include Potala palace, Nam-tso Lake, Draksum-tso Lake, Drepung, Samye and Sakya monasteries.
Tibet is the source of several rivers in the region such as The Brahmaputra, Mekong (Lancang Jiang), The Ganga, The Sutlej, The Salween (Nu Jiang) and Huang He Yangtze (Chang Jiang ).
It’s not only the mesmerizing landscapes that catch the attention of travelers, the monasteries and temples leave a huge impact on the traveler’s mind, as well. The Jokhang temple, situated in Lhasa-the capital city, is thronged by pilgrims and tourists alike all round the year. The temple was built during the seventh century on the orders of the reigning King Songstan Gampo. Jowo rinpoche – the most valuable statue in Tibet is housed in this temple. The statue is of the great Budha Shakyamuni.
Tibet presents many options for treks and trips. The trek to Simikot - Kailash – Zhangu is one of the most challenging treks in the region. During the trek tourists have to change borders. Starting from Nepal, the trekkers have to cross the border to reach Tibet on foot. The Simikot - Kailash – Lhasa trek takes tourists to the remote regions of Nepal and Tibet. Other popular treks include Everest Base Camp Tour (13 days), Lhasa-Kathmandu Overland Tour (11 days), KTM - Lhasa – KTM (7 days) and Mt. Kailash Tour (15 days). For those looking for a little more adventure, there is a 22 day cycling tour from Lhasa to Kathmandu.
