Tibet - Roof of the World
North of the Himalayas lies the roof of the world, a magical land of clear light and pure color rising more than two miles above sea level. This is Tibet, a land of wide-open spaces, ancient cultures, mystical Buddhist Tradition, richly decorated monasteries and temples and an aura of Mystery. Once known as the "Forbidden Land", Tibet now beckons adventurous travelers with a taste for something truly different.
Despite years of social upheaval, Tibet's grandeur, magic and mystery still remain undiminished-truly an adventurer's paradise. Tibet's breathing Himalayan range rising from the Tibetan Plateau; Holy Mt. Kailash; the ruins of lost cities Tsaprang and Tholing; and lake Manasarovar, one of the highest freshwater lakes in the world, are but a few places to which Earthbound Expeditions can escort you, either by road by air. We will provide you with all the necessary information. With a limited travel season for this region (April- November), early reservations are highly recommended to assure air transport availability.
The roof of the world Tibet is a unforgettable land of curious nomads, mysterious gompas and breathtakingly vast panoramas. In Lhasa, long the forbidden city, experience the timeless and most holy Jokhang temple and see the legendary eighth-wonder Potala Palace, go to visit the most Holy Mountain kaialsh and fresh water lake at 4600 mtr Mansarovar or go visit the ruins of Guge kingdom of 11th century. Admire north face of Mt.Everest from the moonscape of Everest Base Camp and end Tibet tour in exotic Kathmandu.
