Famously known as "The Roof of the World", Tibet is one of the oldest city and a cultural hub alive in Central Asia today. Ever since Heinrich Harrer gave the first-hand encounter of Tibet in his book "Seven Years in Tibet", many tried exploring the desolate plateau of the forbidden Himalayan kingdom. Locked away in the higher-altitude and from the curious eyes, it has long excited the western world and media for exploration and discoveries.
Tibetans, the Butter-tea fanatics, have managed to keep their tradition alive for centuries. Lhasa (3,650 m/11,975ft), also known as "The Forbidden City", is the spiritual and political capital of Tibet. The former home of Dalai Lama, the numerous religious and historical monuments, including Potala Palace (Winter Palace), Norbulingka, Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery, Ganden Monastery, Tashilhunpo Monastery and Jokhang Temple, add exotic flavors to the city.
The rugged terrain, varying altitudes, and mostly inaccessible landscapes keep Tibet apart from the rest of the world. The region is mainly inhabited by Tibetan Buddhists, along with the minor population of Bon, Muslim and Christians scattered in the region. Tibet, at large, has still remained unexplored by the tourists, therefore, making it one of those extraordinary destinations where adventure lurks around every corner!
Mt. Kailash, a mountain in the western region of Tibet, is considered holy by Hindus and Buddhists alike. People from various parts of Indian Subcontinent make the pilgrimage to the Kailash once a year. It is also the source of four major Asian tributaries.
