Tibet: The Roof Of The World
Known as the roof of the world, Tibet, the mystical land of fantasy is the heart of Buddhist culture and philosophy and the most mesmerizing destinations of the world today as it seems as reserved as ever.  It is not only the geographical and natural enchants but also a long historical culture and religion that appeal the foreigners to visit Tibet at least once in a lifetime. Rich and beautiful land with an average altitude over 4,000m (13,120ft) above sea level possessing more than fifty peaks above7,000m (22,960ft), Tibet is home to eleven Himalayan mountains over 8,000m (26,240ft). Bordered by China, India, Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan, Burma and Kashmir Tibet is home of over two million people of rich ancient cultures.
Spiritual traditions, temples and monasteries, lakes and rivers, and mighty snow clad peaks are just a few of the intoxicating wonders to be experienced by adventurous travelers who get the opportunity to visit this land.  You will be enthused by watching how pilgrims brave hostile weather and altitude to visit the holy Mt. Kailash and how they prostrate in the flagstone country yard of the Jokhang, offering incense as they circumambulate the holy Buddhists sites to pay veneration to the Shakyamuni.
You will start from the sand dunes along the Brahmaputra basin.  Through the high passes ornamented with colorful flags beating endlessly against the stone cairns, to the blue salt lakes of Namtso, you will travel an ancient trail alive with color, ritual, and history.  The own unique cultures and traditions of the Tibetans Monpas, Lhopas, and Moslems and their style of large exciting celebrations will keep you astonished.
Outside the cities, you will meet natives in their long chubas and exquisite turquoise jewelry who will share with you whatever little they have, exhibiting inspiring Buddhist compassion.
So come and visit the land rich in mountains, monks, mystery, and adventure. Catch the truly nomadic lifestyle and share your experience with your friends.
