Mt. Kailash and Everest Base Camp
Tibet still remains preserved with its enigmatic and deep-rooted culture. A single trip to Tibet can hardly touch on all its offerings.Lhasa, once a restricted city to all foreigners stands as the highest capital in the world, nearly at 12,000 feet. The capital shines with the exhilarating Potala Palace that has 1000 rooms. This palace is the symbol of Tibet and was once the throne of power and the home of the dalai Lamas. Not surprisingly, the Potala palace is the most popular tourist attraction in tibet. The Jokhang temple is Lhasa's "Cathedral." It shelters Jowo sakyamuni, Tibet's most revered image. The Sera and Drepung monasteries, a Little distance outside Lhasa, were sea's of Buddhist learning. It accommodates thousands of monks and disciples.
The Tibetan plateau lies landlocked behind the biggest and the majestic mountain ranges on north. Two third of this boundless and desolate land lies at an average altitude of 15,000 feet. Isolated from the outside world for such long time.
