Tibet
The mystic Shangri-La, the forbidden kingdom on the roof the world has captured man’s imagination for centuries.

Great explorers and adventurers of the century have ventured into this holy land rendered inaccessible by the hostile natural conditions and bandits that waylaid them across through the Himalayas. Despite untold ravages brought about during the Cultural Revolution, Tibet’s past grandeur, majesty, magic and mystery remains undiminished. One can still see today nomads herding their yaks, pilgrims worshipping at sacred shrines and the expansive, striking and enduring Himalayan topography. Tibet is truly an adventurer’s paradise!
