If you want to experience the natural wonders of this amazing country for yourself - our Dreams of Nature tour will be absolutely perfect for you

Set high on the roof of the world and guarded by the planet’s highest peaks, including the colossal Mount Everest, Tibet tours attract travellers looking for a destination with magic and mystery.

An immensely spiritual place, Buddhism remains at the heart of the Tibetan people and their values, and it is in the many monasteries and temples that you will catch the most authentic glimpse of what Tibet is all about. Prepare for awe-inspiring experiences in capital city Lhasa, for breathtaking views of snow-capped peaks, turquoise lakes and yak-strewn plains, an incredibly friendly and welcoming people who are immensely proud of their strong culture and to be touched by a spirituality that is uniquely Tibetan.

Our tours of Tibet spend ample time In Lhasa, wandering around the lanes of the historic Barkhor Circuit, mingling with devotees inside the Jokhang Temple and exploring the multitude of rooms inside the vast Potala Palace that towers over the city.

From the capital we travel across Tibet’s stark plains to Shigatse to explore its own ‘Mini Potala’ and the colourful markets before journeying into the mighty Himalayas to Rongbuk, a monastic village festooned in colourful prayer flags with incredible views of Mount Everest. We then return to Lhasa travelling alongside the Brahmaputra River visiting Gangpo Ri, the ‘birthplace of the Tibetan people' and Yumbulhakang Palace reputed to be the first building in Tibet.

Prepare for a different world on your holiday to Tibet.
