Tibet is known as the roof of the world is still a mystical place that few have dared to explore.It is an ancient country with ancient Buddhist culture, Hidden Valleys, artistic monasteries, breadth taking landscape, centuries old caravan trails and highest point on earth the Mount Everest. It is the highest region in the world with an average altitude of 4875 meters. It is a landlocked country bounded with Nepal, India, Bhutan, Myanmar and China. Road and adventure is never short on the beautiful Trans Himalayan drive of over 970 Km., through four mountain passes, promising a panorama of a cultural and scenic diversity unsurpassable anywhere. It culminates on an arid plateau – a veritable treasure of architectural masterpieces, once the largest, the jokhang- a spiritual Center and the palace of Potala and Norbulinka( the summer palace) of the Dalai Lama . Barter Trade still prevails in Barkhor Bazaar. A region that is not so much a little strange as utterly surreal.
