Recommended by Rough Guides

The "Land of the Thunder Dragon" jealously guards its lifestyles and traditions. Nestled deep in the eastern Himalaya it is a stunningly beautiful country unknown to much of the world. It is a land of magnificent mountains, lush valleys, thick forests, a serene lifestyle and traditions unchanged for centuries. Towns are little more than villages, with quiet streets lined by decorative shops and houses. Colorful prayer flags highlight natural and man-made features of the landscape.

The lure and romance of Nepal comes from its very remoteness - nestled high in the Himalaya. Apart from Nepal’s world-renowned physical attractions – frozen peaks, broad valleys, lush jungles and exotic wildlife – it is a country with an ancient, rich and diverse cultural heritage. Traditional architecture mingles with the modern, busy streets divert around sacred shrines, festivals celebrate gods and heroes and suited-businessmen offer katak’s to departing visitors.

Tibet Thematic Journeys

Do you have a specific interest which you would like to focus on during your trip?
For example - Tibetan art. Include time at a workshop where images of Tibetan deities are made, both for home and public altars. Or learn how thangkas are painted - try this yourself… These are genuine visits to learn from artists known personally to us - not shopping expeditions.
Let us know what interests you and we can work with you to emphasis these aspects in your trip.

Tibetan regions of China

Despite popular impressions Tibet has not been a unified country for most of its history – and today this has not changed. There are great places to visit which are historically and culturally Tibetan which are within China, but outside the TAR – and have been outside Lhasa’s influence for much of their history. These are fantastic places to visit and, in most cases, are not subject to the restrictions controlling travel within the TAR.
