Tibet is a land that has been battered by unholy cicumstances that started in 1959. This ancient nation has over the last few decades been developed into a more modern culture. However, the capital of Lhasa and the route towards northern Nepal still gives us a glimpse of old Tibetan establishments and traditions. Be it the road to Zhangmu or the monasteries in Shigatse and Gyantse, Tibet has its own culture that is still very much alive. There are places in Nepal where travellers are able to experience Tibetan culture and tradition, for instance Mustang and Dolpo. But they do not compare to the feelings that one gets by setting foot in this once restricted country. Even in these modern times the great Potala Palace still gives us a sense of wonder and beauty as it did to travellers hundreds of years ago.
The Classic treks visit the most popular areas of Tibet which are famous for their spectacular views and diverse cultures. Fully supported our trekking expeditions are thoroughly equipped to the last detail. Under the guidance of a professional Sirdar, a superb team of Sherpas, cooks, kitchen staff and porters give the treks considerable style and allow access to some of the remotest parts of the Tibetian Plateau.Tibet - Roof of the World
