TIBET (The Qinghai - Tibet Plateau)

Tibet is the most famous of China's adventure travel areas and is also of primaty interest to us. We have the contacts and experience to do Tibetan adventure travel right.

Tibet is called the " rood of the world ", a reference to its being the highest, widest mountain plateau on earth. In the past it was low-lying seas and palm trees. But with the collision of India with China, the mountains were born. Now much of the plateau is a frozen wilderness of dry winds and vast empty spaces under dark blue cloudless sunny skies. This is the edge of the atmosphere your walking around in here; you are bumping your head against the edge of outer space.

Poets have written reams of verse in praise of the mountains of Tibet, 70% of which are over 4000 meters high, with many peaks breaking the 7000-meter mark. Primitive tribes are sparsely scattered over more than a million square kilometers of wildness prairie land. Many of the large rivers of Asia originate in Tibet and somewhere in the mists of its history lie some of the secrets of the great migrations of early humans into China.

Tibet is the land of the Tibetan Buddhism and few other places in the world have melded their religion and their culture so tightly together. Four million Tibetan people live and worship on the plateau and they keep alive their traditional faith and culture alive despite inevitable intrusions of the modern world.

There is something about witnessing this culture, under the eternal gaze of snow-bound mountains, that draw the most interesting travelers from all over the world. That's one of the fringe benefits of travelling to Tibet: the company you keep. Besides the Tibetans themselves, you meet some of the world's great trekkers.
