Overview

  • Tibet has to be one of the most unique places on this planet. The landscape, the history, the language, the religion and the people are all fascinating. As you’ll hear from us over and over, this is the kind of place you need to visit very soon. The Tibetans will fight with all their power to preserve their customs and way of life, but it will be a difficult battle. We hope they win.
