TIBET

Tibet, name evokes feeling of awe and mystery. A land of ancient Buddhist culture awesome landscapes, artistic monasteries, exotic cities hidden valleys and centuries- old caravan trails, Tibet offers a totally different experience. Known as the Roof of the world, it is the destination for the ultimate thrill- seeker.

And Katmandu is the natural gateway to this amazing land. Once the center of the ancient trade route connecting India & Tibet.

Katmandu is perfectly positioned for its modern role as the hub of adventure tourism in the Himalaya. Fine transport connection exists between Katmandu and Lhasa, the capital of Tibetan Autonomous Region of China. You can go overland on a Scenic highway that retraces the old caravan trail or take a spectacular flight over the Himalaya. The one-hour flight to Lhasa is an adventure in itself. Taking off from Katmandu, plane flies a long side the eastern Himalaya as far as Mt. Everest and then turns north with gigantic snow peaks filling up the left-hand side window soon to touch down at Gonggar Airport, 85 km from Lhasa.The magnificent Potala palace, former seat of the Dalai Lama's, presides over the city. Built in 1645 at the top of a hill, the palace contains 1000 rooms, 10,000 shrines and 200,000 statues.
