Central Tibet Tour-Drive in/Fly Out
Journey to Roof of the World-Central Tibet Tour
Tibet is considered the roof of the world where God reigns in its majesty. This journey, through air or land, promises exploring artistic and sumptuous monasteries, centuries old caravan tracks and incredible spiritual heart and soul of Tibetan Buddhism and culture. And all these in the backdrop of snow clad mountains, giving you the feel walking over the clouds. Home to the majestic Potala Palace and the Dalai Lamas, the trip also explores Tibet’s holiest temple Jokhang along with Sera and Deprung Monasteries- religiously and culturally famous monasteries in Lhasa. This trip is your pass to discover the otherwise isolated world of Tibetan Buddhism and the Sangri-La that it is part of human quest for centuries.
