Destination: Tibet

Travellers to Tibet routinely describe their experience as extraordinary, surreal and life-changing. The endless moonscaped arid wilderness of the Tibetan plateau juxtaposed with the warmth and spirituality of the Tibetan people is a profound experience that leaves a deep impact.

With an average elevation of 4,900 metres the Tibet plateau is the highest region on Earth, often referred to as the Roof of the World. Even the valley bottoms of Tibet are higher than the highest mountains in other parts of the world.

Tibet offers a lot for the traveller including stunning monasteries, adventure activities like high-altitude treks, amazing views of the world’s highest mountains and interaction with one of the most likeable peoples in the world. Amber Tours’ meticulously planned itineraries ensure that you see the best of this incredible land.

Tibetan arts and handicrafts drawn from Tibetan Buddhist traditions also make great gifts, mementos and decoration pieces. Amongst them are Tibetan hats, gold and silver jewelry, wooden items, clothing, quilts, fabrics, Tibetan rugs and carpets. The intricate and vibrant thangka paintings and mandalas are coveted the world over.

Though the adventure circuits of Tibet are not as well known as others in the region, they are exhilarating and challenging. Amber Tours offers Everest range treks from the relatively unexplored Tibetan side of the Himalayas and short treks through Namchag Barwa for nature lovers and amateur botanists. There are also mountain biking trails including the Lhasa to Kathmandu trail considered one of the longest and toughest bike trips.

Amber Tours’ highly rated Kingdoms of the Himalayas tour covers all the key cultural and outdoor attractions of Tibet. You can also opt for a custom tour of Tibet that is tailor made for your interests.

Tips and Suggestions for Tibet

  • Tibet’s high-altitude requires acclimatization prior to activity. Flying into Lhasa and acclimatizing there is recommended since it is lower than other areas of Tibet.
  • Lhasa, Tibet’s capital city, has history of more than 1300 years and offers several cultural and historical attractions. Leading amongst them are the world heritage sites the Potala Palace and Norbulingka, the former residences of the Dalai Lama.
  • There are also a number of temples and monasteries in Lhasa with deep religious and historical significance, including Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery, Jokhang Temple and Ramoche Temple.
