About This Trip
Travel through softly rolling mountains, freshwater lakes, and gilded temples to the very soul of Tibet on this week-long journey. Tibet has long held a magical allure for outsiders with its blend of spiritual mystique and natural beauty. Located in China's far west, Tibet is a sacred land of monasteries, crimson-robed monks and soaring white mountains. Experience how Tibetan Buddhism permeates nearly every aspect of life in this region by stopping by university monasteries, an old Tibetan pharmacy, and golden roofed temples.
