Tibet

Tibet, the “Roof of the World”, the “The Land of Snow” has so much to offer you. There are grand, majestic mountain ranges, pristine lakes and the fascinating interweaving of religious and worldly lives, with the many monasteries that are fully integrated into the every day lives of the Tibetans. Already Lhasa is worth a trip, with the Jokhang Temple, a national heritage and of course the Potala Palace, where the Dalai Lamas used to reside. But also the Tashilhünpo Monastery, the residence of the 11th Panchen Lama in Shigatse and the holy mountain Kailash in Western Tibet are gems waiting to be discovered. Whenever possible, we are working with Tibetans during our trips.

Changing the altitude suddenly, for example, travel by car or plane, the body cannot adapt well and so we have to be attentive. Altitude sickness often makes the following symptoms: head sealed sides ache, dizziness, difficult for breathing, fatigue, insomnia. On a trip to Tibet, interested people who have heart disease or high blood pressure should consult with their physician.

Because of the risk of altitude sickness during the tour we give our more time to acclimatise. It is important to drink a lot and rest.
