Tibet has always been draped in its own mystery and culture, an isolated land surrounded on all sides by towering mountain ranges. Known as the Roof of the World, Tibet boasts breathtaking scenery, striking religious and cultural prominence, and warm welcoming locals. The biodiversity of Tibet is also stunning; explore environments ranging from arid and dusty plateaus with nomads tending their yak herds, to heavily forested hills, to the southern valleys, with their hospitable cities, harbouring countless monasteries, temples, palaces and ancient monuments too numerous to count. The natural and spiritually meaningful sites of the snowy Mount Kailash peak, the sprawling Lake Manasarovar, and the mysterious caves of the Guge Kingdom, tunneled into the walls of a canyon, lend the region a further mystical and remote feel.
