For travellers, Tibet is without doubt one of the most remarkable places to visit in Asia. It offers fabulous monastery sights, breathtaking high-altitude treks, stunning views of the world's highest mountains and one of the most likeable peoples you will ever meet. There''s Gyantse, in the Nyang-chu Valley, famed for the largest ch�rten (stupa) in Tibet, and hiking in Yarlung Valley, widely considered the cradle of Tibetan civilization.

Your trip will take you past glittering mountain turquoise lakes and over high passes draped with prayer flags. Find a quiet spot in a prayer hall full of chanting monks, hike past the ruins of remote hermitages or make an epic overland trip along some of the world's wildest roads. The scope for adventure is limitless.
