Tibet, located on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau at the southwest frontier of China is famously known as the' roof of the world.' The eastern part is covered with forest, open grasslands in the north and agricultural lands in the south. Tibet has one municipality, Lhasa and six prefectures, Shigatse, Chamdo, Nagqu, Shannan, Ngari, and Nyingchi.
Tibet is a mostly Buddhist territory and a spiritual region consisting of monasteries, mountains, holy lakes and possibly the kindest and most likable people on the planet. Adventure Club Trek has several customized tour packages that take you to this mystic land of the Buddhist monk and their prayers. The site of pilgrims walking around Mt. Kailas, the smell of juniper incense, colorful festivals, and breathtaking mountain views best describe Tibet.
The geography of Tibet is just as fascinating as its culture. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, it is the highest plateau on Earth. Tibet covers an area of 1.2 million sq. Km. All this adventure awaits you but depends on whether or not you get a permit. So, it is recommended to go through a trekking company's network instead of venturing solo, solo travel to Tibet is not next to impossible but also very expensive.
