Tibet Travel: Exploring Tibet

Tibet travel is not always a common tourist destination. People think of Tibet as an arid, high-altitude desert, part of China and stretching from Lhasa to Mt. Kailas in the west. But Tibet is more vast and diverse, providing for rich experiences in Tibet travel. East of Lhasa lush forests of rhododendrons and azaleas flourish. To the west is Ladakh, controlled by India, bordering on Kashmir, and home to a rich, intact Buddhist culture, vibrant festivals and reasonable prices.

Choose from several Tibet travel expeditions that range from 11 days to 22 days depending on your interests and preferred destinations. Spend your time in Tibet discovering the Buddhist legacy culture or visiting the festivals, monasteries, and waters in Ladakh. If you’re interested in visiting more countries while traveling to Tibet, choose a trip that combines the wonders of Tibet, Nepal, and Bhutan.

More interested in custom adventure travel for your Tibet trip? Opt for a trans-Himalayan Jeep tour that takes you across five Himalayan passes! Traverse across a region of Tibet on the India-Tibet border for the best views of the geographical and cultural features of the area.
