Adventure holidays to Tibet
Tibet is truly breath-taking from its awe-inspiring mountain tops to the peaceful and quiet people. Don’t forget – as the roof of the world, you’ll also find it physically breath-taking at times as well.
While it may look small compared to china, Tibet is actually a rather large country and as such has plenty of opportunities for travellers who want to get even more off the beaten track and experience adventurous activities that go beyond the norm. Hike past glittering lakes and over some of the highest passes with incredible views of the Himalayas. Cross the Tibetan Plateau, lose count of how many yaks you’ve passed and explore small, remote villages.
Tibet conjures images of spiritual people, ancient temples and high mountain passes but the small amounts of tourists that make it here means that few people actually know 21st century Tibet. Adventure travellers that make the effort to visit Tibet tell their tales for years to come.
The best time to visit Tibet is when the weather is warmest between May and September, however April and October and November are also good choices, when there are slightly less people around and the weather is fairly cold.
