Tibet Trekking Tours
TIBET: Trekking and Touring through a timeless period on the ‘Roof of the World’…
Tibet is an adventure haven for different types of day hikes, trekking and cultural tours of immense attraction. One of them is the walk from Ganden to Samye monastery taking 3-4 days, or hiking to Everest Base Camp from Old Tingri, or doing the kora around holy Mount Kailash. The more challenging trek is found in the Kharta area, viewing the Khangshung Face of Mount Everest.
Another unique area for trekking is South Shisapangma Base Camp, which is one of the 8,000m peaks lying close to the border of Nepal which can be seen from Kathmandu on a lovely clear day.
Treks and Cultural Tours in Tibet gives us great opportunities to experience the stunning opulence and beauty of Mother Nature. As we plod through the Tibetan Plateau crossing high Himalayan Passes surrounded with views of massive glittering peaks, different species of birds and animals, bumping into colorfully attired roving Tibetan nomads, walking into quiet old monasteries with Tibetan culture give us vacations of substance never to be forgotten.
Adventures on the roof of the world are an altogether off-track experience of another kind. As we hike along the jagged Tibetan terrain, we are greeted with new sights throughout the course of our journey: from the baked Tibetan countryside that resembles a lunar landscape to the medieval villages with their colorful prayer flags and magnificent monasteries is a gripping outing that arouses our interest everyday of the venture; lengthy trekking trails that skirts barley fields and nomadic pastureland, all through our journey, we get fantastic chances to observe Tibetan lifestyle at close quarters and experience the real Tibet. And most of your treks start with absorbing sightseeing tours to Lhasa and beyond.
Cultural Tours are an immense leisure in Tibet. Sightseeing in Lhasa and its adjoining famed cities of Gyantse, Shigatse, Ganden and Namtso area is a compelling delight for travelers on cultural tours. Besides these well known ancient cities and monasteries, the area by itself is steeped in prehistoric history and culture from the days of the Mongol hordes that ravaged Asia.
we still see some of the Mongolian Buddhist monasteries that exists till date, the colorful festivals and rituals are one of the most captivating parts of Tibet on the world’s highest plateau and lifestyles hereabouts are just like it was since past centuries, but Lhasa’s current landscapes are a blend of the old and new, the new Lhasa is a modern town, having a network of streets, apartments, hotels and stores that depict Lhasa in a different light.
The old city of Lhasa dates back to 6 -7th century and this is found near the Jorkhang temple, from here one can still see Lhasa of the old days with pilgrims, traders and people from all walks of life. Lhasa is a charming tourist’s haven with interesting places from the busy markets of Barkhor, monasteries, and the famed, superb Potala Palace which stands imposingly over the Lhasa Valley.
