Great trip to a very unique area of the world. A view of Tibetan life, religion, geography, Chinese influence , great food. We also were able to get base camp and see everest very clearly, a wonderful experience.
A very varied trip - everything from temples to beautiful snow scenery. Unfortunately the 'snow scenery' stopped us getting to Everest Base Camp, which was a great disappointment, but obviously you can't argue with the weather and avalanches.
An amazing experience only disappointed by not getting to base camp due to weather conditions. It's the chance you take and you may not get to see Everest if weather turns for the worst. There are a lot of monasteries to see but each one did have something spectacular to look at.
A little heavy on the monastery front but as there are few other cultural buildings of places to visit this is all there is. However many of them are incredible although the site of all of the money in buckets and boxes does get some getting used to.
An incredibly beautiful country, friendly people, fascinating culture. Highly recommend a visit to Tibet; be aware this trip is largely focussed on monasteries, with 2 days of mountain-viewing at the end. The altitude throughout Tibet also makes this trip physiologically tough, though beyond an optional trek to Base Camp and climbing numerous monastery steps there is not much physical exercise.
