Tibet “The Roof of the World” an ancient land of mystery with unique culture, mightily rivers, desolate mountains, unique & traditional Tibetan monasteries and ancient cities offers an exciting memorable journey to anyone. A hidden world, unreachable and closed for foreigners for centuries, is now open to world.

Early History Evidence of human habitation dating between 12,000 and 11, 000 years ago has been found in Northwest Tibet, and in South Tibet the Yarlung Zangbo valley was, over the centuries, the focus of ancient trade routes from India, China, and Central Asia. Tibet emerged from an obscure history to flourish in the 7th century. In this land of scant rainfall and a short growing season, the only extensive agricultural region is the Yarlung Zangbo valley, where barley, wheat, potatoes, millet, and turnips are grown. In this valley, there lies all the large cities, including Lhasa, Xigaze (Shigatse), and Gyangze (Gyangtse). Almost completely surrounded by mountain ranges (including the Himalayas in the south and the Kunlun in the north), Tibet is largely a plateau averaging 16, 000 ft (4, 880 m) in height. Many of the mightiest rivers of East Asia, especially the Chang (Yangtze), the Mekong, and the Thanlwin, rise in Tibet.

Traveling to Tibet is an incredible journey in which one can see the world’s highest mountains, travel on the world’s highest plains, meet nomadic herdsmen and pilgrims and walk amidst the burning butter lamps & chanting monks of Tibet’s ancient and legendary Buddhist monasteries. It would definitely be a wonderful and amazing trip.
