Tibet's dramatic setting and traditional culture provide the basis for its most rewarding activities, and although the relocation of Han Chinese communities has led to a gradual dilution of Tibetan customs, the activities that we recommend focus on taking you as close as possible to traditional Tibetan life and culture. Witness the call to prayer at Lhasa, the cultural and religious heart of Tibet, explore the Norbulingka, the Dalai Lama’s former summer palace, worship in the traditional Tibetan way by walking the Ganden Kora or travel along the scenic, flag-adorned Friendship Highway towards Everest Base Camp.
