A trip to the "Roof of the World" guarantees to be an amazing experience. The majestic moonlike landscape and the stunning cultures make this one of the world' s most alluring destinations. The 5-day tour covers the main highlights of Tibet, which are easy to access to visitors.

Lhasa, in the southeast part of Tibet, surrounded by colossal mountain ranges to the north and south, is the heart and soul of Tibet, its center of politics, economy, religion and culture. Not only the world famous symbol of the enigmatic power of politics and religion, the Potala Palace, is a great and breath-taking site of this city. Also for example the Jokhang Temple is an UNESCO site, the spiritual center and the holiest shrine of Tibet.

The beautiful highland region of Shigatse is located where the Yarlong Tsangpo River joins the Lichu river, in the southwest of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Its population consist of 16 nationalities which mainly inhabit the Brahmaputra valley with a few in the pastoral area of the west.

Southwest of Lhasa, southeast of Shigatse, lies Gyantse. It is the third largest town in Tibet and most famous for its stunning KumBum, a place of great religious and artistic importance.

We will stay in Lhasa at 3,658 meters above sea level, then in Shigatse at 4040 and in Gyantse at 4044 meters above sea level.
People respond to an increase in altitude differently, with responses including general discomfort, breathlessness, poor sleeping patterns or limited capacity for physical exertion. Please consult with your local travel clinic or physician for specifics about altitude sickness and your personal health.

Best time to visit

Travel is possible at all times of year. Peak season runs from May to mid-October, when there is adequate oxygen and less headache. Summers are warm, but not really hot, though the sun can be very strong due to the altitude.
