Tibet, the mysterious land beyond Himalayas, has for centuries been a seductive destination for travelers. Its rich Buddhist heritage, intrepid people and stunning natural beauty are a source of fascination and intrigue to people the world over. We offer you a way to magically step back in time, to visit an isolated, relatively untouched place in Tibetan Cultural Area, where you can be at one with nature as nowhere else.
One of the trips will start in Lhasa, the holy capital of Tibet, where we will explore its monasteries and temples under the guidance of our experts. We will then continue our journey to Gyangtse and Shigatse, where we will visit Kumbuk Monastery and Tashilunpo Monastery. Afterwards, we will go to Tingri, and from Tingri to Rombuk Monastery.. From there we will start for a 3-days hike to Mt. Everest Base Camp & surroundings. The other trip will start in Lhasa, too. And then will start hiking from Genden Monastery. After 3-4days hiking on the traditional trek with local Tibetans and yaks, we will arrive Samye Monastery located in Yalutsanpo River valley. We will take part in prayer ceremonies, visit homes and nomads' tents of local Tibetans on our trips. By experiencing the wonders and part of the spiritual challenges experienced by Tibet's pilgrims, we may gain an understanding of why Tibetans draw an equal sign between religion and life.
