Tibet and Central Asia's Unique Highlights and Experiences
The series of unique and exciting experiences offered on our Tibet & Central Asia Immerse Yourself Tours will help you delve even deeper into each region’s heart and soul.
Everest Base Camp
Colourful prayer flags and little orange tents surround you as you gaze upon the north face of Mount Everest, and get a glimpse of the demanding climb up the mountain on the roof of the world.
Explore the Gobi Dessert
Stay in a yurt camp on the plains of the Gobi, take a four-wheel drive through the curving, ever moving ‘Singing Sand Dunes’, and stand before the deep orange Flaming Cliffs of Bayanzag.
Trace the Silk Road
See the legendary Terracotta Warriors before tracing the original Silk Road overland. Pass by the ancient Ruins of the Iron Fortress and Subashi, and through uninhabited, dazzlingly desolate desert.
Great Wall at Jiayuguan
Snaking through the sands of the Gobi, Jiayu Pass is regarded as China’s western gateway. Wander through Jiayu Fortress and on the Wall itself for views of the beautifully bleak desert.
Kashgar Sunday Bazaar
A visit to the colourful Sunday Bazaar overwhelms the senses with colour, smells and tastes (if you dare!). Roll up your sleeves and immerse yourself in China’s biggest and burgeoning bazaar.
Home to more than 3,000 monks, Sera Monastery is noted for animated and sometimes heated debating sessions, which are integral to the Buddhist learning process.
Dating back to the Ghengis Khaan period, the Naadam is the biggest celebration of the Mongolian calendar. You’ll experience the proud nomadic culture and witness the three ‘manly games’ of horse racing, wrestling and archery.
Traverse the Torugart Pass
Cut through the Tian Shan Mountains and over the Torugart Pass, a remote outpost marking the border of Kyrgyzstan; you’ll feel like an adventurer of old as you pass through.
