Despite the controversy surrounding its sovereignty, a holiday to Tibet has much to reward the curious visitor. Our specialists have a deep respect and a passion for this enigmatic land — its multi-faceted, pervasive Buddhism, its outpost-like towns, and its Himalaya landscapes. They’ll plot a course that can take you to Lhasa to visit the long-empty white-and-gold wedding cake of the Potala Palace. And then there are even less developed places such as Gyantse’s old town, a living repository of traditional Tibetan architecture.
They’re also brimming with ideas for how to see Tibetan culture at its most undiluted, suggesting experiences that you can easily weave into your own Tibet itinerary. You can watch monks debate with unexpected vociferousness at some of Tibet’s most beguiling and oldest monasteries. You can camp and stargaze by isolated ice-blue lakes. Or, you can make the short-day trek from Rongbuk Monastery for a back-door view of Everest few people will ever see.
On a tailor-made holiday to Tibet with Audley, you’ll see the scenic highlights — and much more — your way. We’ll design your ideal trip with you, paying close attention to your interests, your travel style and your budget.

India to Nepal: where to go in the Himalaya
Spanning six countries and the world’s highest mountain range, the Himalaya isn’t a region you usually tackle in one go. We compare and contrast the best Himalayan journeys, which include seeking out rhinos in Nepal, visiting remote dzongs in Bhutan and riding railways in India.
Visiting monasteries in Tibet
Buddhism is the lifeforce of Tibet, so visiting its monasteries will probably form the crux of your trip. But why are monasteries so rewarding to visit, and where exactly should you go? Tibet specialist Duncan shares his thoughts.
Ask the expert: how to experience Tibet
It’s remote, its politics is an imbroglio, and there are strict rules governing Western visitors — but Tibet still rewards in spades. Tibet specialist Duncan explains why Tibet’s monasteries, capital and its portion of Everest are so fulfilling to visit.
