Hot Scenic Spots

Tibet lies in the north-east of the Himalayas. It is special not only for the spectacular nature scenery, also the unique local customs. For a lot of people, Tibet is remote and inaccessible. But once you are here, you would know it’s a magical place, it is alien to common experiences. The beauty of Tibet is impossible to describe in words. Stop trying to define it, come and immerse yourself in it.

This is the best trip ever. Tibet is just wonderful. We travelled with Go To Tibet in early 2018 and joined the EBC group tour, I am surprised by the wonderful service provided by them...
