When you think of Tibet it conjures up thoughts of Buddhism, Yaks, monks, Chinese occupation, slogans like “Free Tibet” and the Dalai Lama. And although the country has a reputation for being extremely beautiful there seems to be a cloud of uncertainty about when, if and how to visit.
The surprising thing is it actually isn’t difficult to visit Tibet. All you have to do is book a tour through a registered Tibet tour company like Tibet Odyssey Tours and they will handle the rest. The tour company will arrange your Tibet Entry Permit and help make your travel plans. In addition you can consult with the Tibet tour company about any questions you may have.
You just have to look at a few photos of Tibet to know that it is one of the most untouched natural landscapes in the world, the country has a unique culture, long and illustrious history and some stunning Buddhist monasteries. Travelers should put political considerations aside and discover Tibet for themselves, visitors can meet the locals, learn about the land and form their own opinions of Tibet.
Some of the unique experiences you can have on a Tibet tour is to hike through the untouched countryside; visit remote monasteries; see Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain; take part in traditional festivals; share a cup of butter tea in a Tibetan home and shop for handmade Tibetan crafts in small market towns.
So go on an adventure, see one of the last untouched areas in the world and do something really different!
