The Roof of the World

Tibet, a vast trans-Himalayan region, is the highest plateau on earth and it's not an exaggeration when it's called the "Roof of the World". The scope of travel to Tibet is unlimited! You may visit Lhasa only for the glimpses of this mystic land or visit the Central Tibet to cover the major attractions that Tibet has to offer, take a road trip to the foot of mighty Everest or go much further west to sacred Lake Manasarovara and Mount Kailash in Ngari region or even go off-the-road and hike or trek in the wilderness.

Travel to Tibet takes you to ancient Buddhist monasteries, palaces, ruins of the hermitages, high passes with flickering prayer flags, spectacular views of the vast plateau and the peaks of the Himalayan mountains, glittering turquoise green lakes.
