"The Roof of the World" an ancient land of mystery
with unique culture, mightily rivers, desolate mountains,
unique & traditional Tibetan monasteries and ancient cities
offers an exciting memorable journey to any one. A hidden
world, unreachable and closed for foreigners for centuries,
is now open to world.
Early History Evidence of human habitation dating
between 12,000 and 11, 000 years ago has been found in Northwest
Tibet, and in South Tibet the Yarlung Zangbo valley was, over
the centuries, the focus of ancient trade routes from India,
China, and Central Asia. Tibet emerged from an obscure history
to flourish in the 7th cent. AD ...
In this land of scant rainfall and a short growing
season, the only extensive agricultural region is the Yarlung
Zangbo valley, where larley, wheat, potatoes, millet, and
turnips are grown. In this valley are nearly all the large
cities, including Lhasa, Xigaze (Shigatse), and Gyangze (Gyangtse).
Almost completely surrounded by mountain ranges
(including the Himalayas in the south and the Kunlun in the
north), Tibet is largely a plateau averaging 16, 000 ft (4,
880 m) in height. Many of the mightiest rivers of East Asia,
especially the Chang (Yangtze), the Mekong, and the Thanlwin,
rise in Tibet.
Traveling to Tibet is an incredible journey
in which one can see the world's highest mountains, travel
on the worl's highest plains, meet nomadic herdsmen and pilgrims
and walk amidst the burning butter lamps & chanting monks
of Tibet's ancient and legendary Buddhist monasteries. This
is a wonderful and amazing trip.
