On to the Rooftop of the World! Experience a high altitude safari like none another. Four of the world’s highest mountains straddle its southern border and the average altitude is 4000 meters. One of the most isolated regions in the world, here is your chance to visit this amazing and mysterious country. Not only is it one of the last remaining great wildernesses but it is also the source of Asia’s great rivers which supply 47% of the world’s population and has the earth’s highest ecosystem. Visit this land of dramatic landscapes and magnificent Buddhist temples by flying into Lhasa from Kathmandu and driving out in Toyota Land Cruisers, crossing the Himalayan Divide via Mount Everest. We will also have the opportunity to experience the intersection of Chinese and Buddhist civilizations. Spending three days in the Mount Everest North Face region from the Rongbuk Monastery (highest in the world) to Everest Base Camp and Zhangmu, all with their dramatic views will be another unique experience.
Lonely Planet says, “For anyone who travels with their eyes open, a visit to Tibet will be a memorable, fascinating but sobering and at times even saddening experience.”
