Our neighbor to the north…
Potala Palace, Lhasa
Rugged, yet peaceful and charming, this is Tibet - the land where one can realize Nirvana, one’s inner self. The breath-taking landscape, the vast expanse of land, the thin air and the smiling Tibetan people will make your journey one that you will always remember. Here Buddhism is not a religion but part of life and after years of imposition of outside values, the hardy Tibetan people have barely managed to maintain, preserve and practice their culture.
Do remember to step out of your tent at night to gaze at the stars, take a deep breath and meditate.
