Tibet is not only an important place for spiritual and religious seekers but also for those travellers and trekkers who really want to explore the mystic treasure of culturally rich traditions, impressive architecture, imaginative monasteries, the way of life of Tibetans, high Himalayas and nature’s beauty. Tibet was called Bod-yul and Ti in the past.Tibet is a modern name. Tibet is also known as “Roof of the World” because it is situated at the altitude ranging from 1000 ft – 16,500 ft. This high land of Tibetan Plateau is encircled by a long series of impressive peaks, notably Everest, Cho Oyu, etc.
There are many salt-water lakes in Tibet. The capital city of Tibet is Lhasa, which is situated on the right bank of the Kyi Chhu River. Tibet is easily accessible by land or by air from Kathmandu.
The 3,000 kilometer chain of the Himalayas have prevented passage to life-giving monsoon rains and foreign invaders alike. North of their ramparts the land suddenly and dramatically changes to the dry and unforgiving high altitude wilderness of the Tibetan Plateau. This most isolated region in the world, the earth's highest ecosystem and one of its last remaining wild places defies belief in its stark beauty and grandeur.
Its people also are some of the most resilient and self sufficient. Their spiritual riches and deep religious convictions grew a cohesive and peaceful society in balance with itself and nature, alone and undisturbed on the Roof of the World. These riches, physical and spiritual, live on in Tibet's fabulous gilded monasteries, holy places and monuments
