This journey takes you to the roof of the world and the heart of Tibet where you find fabulous mountain landscapes and a rich Buddhist culture. We start our trip with a short cultural tour in Kathmandu and fly soon after to the capital of Tibet, Lhasa. In this holy city you experience the hospitality of the Tibetans and you discover ancient palaces, temples and monasteries.
