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.
