Tibet- The last Shangri-La

Tibet, the Roof of the World, remained unknown to the rest of the world until the beginning of the 20th century. The massive, snowy land has fascinated mankind ever since. Its majestic scenery, mysterious and exotic religious culture and wonderul people, reward every tourist with an incredible life long memory!
Culturally, the wide territory of Yunan, West Sichuan and Qinghai which were traditionally known as Kham and Amdo are still very much Tibetan, although modern Tibet confines to the territory of Tibet Autonomous region in political map. With an average altitude of 4,000 meters above sea level, Tibet is encompassed by some of the world's highest mountains. The Himalayas to the south, the Karakoram to the west, and the Kunlun to the north are the dream lands of all adventures and mountaineers.

Tibet

The vast land is also the cradle of several great rivers such as the Yangtze River, the Yellow River, the Nu River (Salween), the Lancang River (Mekong), the Yarlung Tsangpo (Brahmaputra), the Indus and the Ganges. Tibet also offers awe-inspiring scenery of beautiful lakes and valleys. There are over 1,500 lakes on the Tibetan plateau, including the heavenly Lake Namtso and the holy Lake Mansarova. Without irrigation and nurturance of these rivers and lakes, the surrounding lands may not flourish.
Although Tibet exerts a great attraction to the tourists, facilities are still underway, road conditions are poor and professionalism is yet to develop. So traveling Tibet should not be taken lightly. You will need mental preparedness, good health and good amount of patience.
