Tibet, the very name evokes feeling of awe and mystery. A land of ancient Buddhist culture, awesome landscapes, artistic monasteries, exotic cities, hidden valleys and centuries-old caravan trails; Tibet offers a very different experience. Known as the Roof of the World, it is the destination for ultimate thrill -seekers Kathmandu is the natural gateway to this amazing land. Once the center of the ancient trade route connecting India and Tibet, Kathmandu is perfectly positioned for its modern role as the hub of adventure tourism in the high Himalayas.
Fine transport connections exit between Kathmandu and Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, The Autonomous Region of China. You can go overland on a scenic highway that retraces the old caravan trail or take a spectacular flight over the Himalayas. The one-hour flight to Lhasa is an adventure in itself. Taking off from Kathmandu, the plane flies alongside the eastern Himalayas as far as Mt. Everest and then turns north with gigantic snow peaks filing up the left-hand side windows.
