Why to Visit Tibet

Tibet Holiday VacationsTibet's cultural philosophy, religion, and spiritualism can be found in contact with native people and their arts. Architecture, rug weaving, Thangka painting, metal work, butter sculpture, sand mandalas, textiles and jewelry are just few things to be sampled.

The Himalayas
The mighty Himalayas, like a silver screen, zigzag along Tibet’s southern horizon adjacent to Nepal. Mount Everest, known locally has Qomolangma, needs no introduction, as it is the world’s highest peak ( 8,848m). The optimal weather season is from April to June for adventurers set on mountaineering. Lhotse (8,516m), the world’s fourth highest peak, Makalu (8,463m), the fifth highest, Cho Oyu (8,201m), the sixth highest and Shisha Pangma (8,012m), the 14th highest, also reside Tibet.

The landscape at the northern side of the Himalayas is as attractive as it is in the south. The world’s highest glaciers are found on these slopes, which are mysteriously in wait for man’s exploration. A pilgrimage to Kailas can take you through the northern grasslands with many beautiful lakes to experience Tibetan nomadic life of long ago. Also, Kailas may be approached from another direction that offers a rich view of bird life.

Any trip to the Himalayas promises lots of unforgettable memories!
