Tibet Overland Tour

 

 

The tour familiarizes you to the geography and cultural heritages of this region very well. Tibet is a desert-like landscape beyond the Himalayas because it receives very little rainfall. But, historically, it has been a hotbed of Buddhism. A number of monasteries this trip covers gives you intimate insights into how Buddhism has made a deep imprint upon everyday life of the people living here.
