Isolated by great natural barriers, Tibet has evoked a certain magic and mystery and tantalized the imagination of the western world. A century ago, a visit to Lhasa took stamina, nerve and a good deal of luck, but now, considerably easier, a tour to this region showcases a unique and highly developed culture, with religion at its very core. The Tibetan plateau, high and desolate is extraordinary in its pristine beauty and ruggedness. Dominated by an intensely blue sky and vast open spaces of clear light and pure color, people live in a timeless setting.The old ways truly thrive here and visits to monasteries and temples are an integral part of any visit to Tibet. Travel in this part of the world is not always easy, but rewards with glimpses of a land and people unlike any other. Himalayan Treasures & Travel has a long association with Tibet.
