Eastern Tibet Tour – 19 days

An incredible adventure from the spiritual heart of Tibet through some of the harshest and most dramatic landscapes the world has to offer. Isolated valleys, tribal villages and remote monasteries. An unforgettable and unique glimpse of a rapidly changing world. Gyantse and Shigatse are powerful testaments to a long and volatile history and to the spiritual and artistic traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. On the banks of the Brahmaputra Tibet’s first monastery, Samye is laid out in the form of a mandela. Beautiful Lamaling is one of the 12 temples commissioned in the 7th century to pin down the ogress who is the Tibetan landscape. Travel eastwards into Kham, one of the most isolated and least visited areas on Earth. This is a stunning journey of breathtaking beauty. Snow capped mountains, deep, forested valleys, crystal-clear lakes and rivers and vast barren plateaus. Here the great rivers as Brahmaputra, Salween, Mekong, Yangzi, Irrawaddy  descend from the Tibetan Plateau. They are carving deep gorges through the mountains. The roads are rough and winding and the vista around every corner will make you gasp anew.
