Tibet

A sacred land of myths and mysteries inhabited by the ever smiling people, has not only exerted a magnetic pull upon travelers for centuries but also spies, missionaries, scholars, geographers, mystics, soldiers and cranks, etc. Yet, few intrepid, serious and determined have been able to make it.
Tibet was opened to tourism in 1985. Before this, it avoided influence from the West and this country developed its unique culture and religion independently. Since the spiritual leaders governed Tibet, monasteries and religious institutions were the backbone of power so the importance and prestige were shown by the size and magnificent architecture of these buildings. Tibetan Buddhism contains many elements of their older religion.” Bon Po” worshipped the sky, moon, sun, fire, soil and even evil spirits and this is why a monastery such as Tashilhumpo contains thousands of unique statues, paintings (thangka), religious and historical books, which to visit in detail would take weeks. Pilgrims who often travel long distances to fulfill their vows crowd the Monasteries and their emotions show that religion still holds a very important place in their daily lives.

It is extremely remote and isolated by the most formidable Himalayan ranges. It is a fascinating world of timeless splendor, unique tradition and breathtaking scenery awaiting all travelers to the Roof of the World.
