Uncover where to go in Tibet, from trekking to Everest Base Camp to watching Tibetan monks at prayer in Lhasa’s monasteries

Dotted with monasteries and strung with prayer flags, Tibet has a strong religious and cultural identity that’s evident wherever you go. Our specialists, having visited the main sights in Tibet, can recommend the best places to visit for you to make the most of your trip.

Sky-punching mountains will form a backdrop to much of your time in Tibet, whether you’re trekking to Everest Base Camp or journeying by road to the historic town of Gyantse, passing the turquoise waters of Yamdrok-tso. Lhasa, the capital, sits in a valley of the Himalaya surrounded by steep-sided mountains whose mocha-hued peaks are covered in dazzling white snow in winter. Nearby is Drepung, once the largest monastery in the world and still a place of worship for Tibetan monks.
