Shangri La, ‘the Rooftop of the World’ – locked away in its Himalayan fortress, Tibet has long exercised a siren’s hold on the imagination of the West. Tibetans are used to hardship and, despite the disastrous Chinese occupation, they have managed to keep their culture and humour alive.
“Go to Tibet and see many places, as much as you can; then tell the world.” HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA. Tibet is simply one of the most remarkable places in Asia. It offers fabulous monasteries, breathtaking high-altitude treks, stunning views of the world’s highest mountains and one of the most likeable peoples you will ever meet.
