07 DAYS TIBET PANORAMA
Trip code: CN-TPN7

 
 
 Truly the roof of the world! The majestic moonlike landscape and the stunning cultures make this one of the world’s most alluring destinations.
While Tibet itself certainly fascinates every visitor, this itinerary takes care of the final details to allow you to appreciate its unique heritage, religion, life-style and arts. We include a visit to a nunnery, catching a monk debating session in a monastery, watching a renowned tangka painter at work and meeting a nomad family.
Traveling in Tibet can be rough and the high altitude is a concern. Our package offers the best hotel (with deluxe room) in the city, private vehicle, doctor on arrival and oxygen supply etc to make the adventure as comfortable as possible.
