Reasons to Visit
Scattered across the country the Tibetan monasteries which survived the Chinese invasion are colourful and often breathtaking, in remote locations and dating back many hundreds of years.
On top of a mountain, thousands of metres above sea level, one can look out over arching peaks and open plains and not see another being for miles, save for the occasional yak herder.
One of the world's truly great rail journeys, this tremendous feat of engineering enables the visitor to travel from Beijing to Lhasa on a stunning two night journey across the Tibetan Plateau.
Fluttering prayer flags atop mountains, smoky incense and the rich clang of prayer bowls are synonymous with Tibetan Buddhism. The religion has a rich yet troubled history with the current Dalai Lama living in exile.
Breathtaking scenery awaits those who venture beyond the capital, including the Himalayan mountain range and base camp at Everest. Add to this ice blue lakes, yak-herding nomads and glaciers for a truly spectacular scenic journey.
