How to Book China tour


We had a wonderful time in Tibet. We have learned a lot about this unique destination because of the wonderful guide Degyi who is so knowledge and always available towards our tours. We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa, and we would never imagine a Tibet travel could be so nice and amazing without the help of Degyi.

Also, thanks a lot to our Tibetan driver Mr.Wongdun for his safe driving and a good sense of service along the way.

We shall return Tibet in the near future!

Tibet is no doubt one of people's most wanting places to visit in the world.

How To Get ThereThe transportation in Tibet has changed and been improved a lot especially during the past three decades. Now Tibet can be accessible by plane, train and by bus. The most fast and convenient way is getting Lhasa, Tibet by air. Lhasa's Gonggar Airport has flight links other major cities on the Chinese mainland such as Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu, Kunming, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Shanghai, and Kathmandu in Nepal. Among all the cities, Chengdu is the most important hub which has the most flights to Lhasa on a daily basis. Most travelers choose Chengdu as their gateway to Lhasa, Tibet. Traveling to Tibet by overland trips is getting popular for these who have a longer and flexible travel plan. There are five highways stretching into Tibet from the Chinese Mainland and Nepal, namely, Sichuan -- Tibet Highway, Yunnan -- Tibet Highway, Qinghai -- Tibet Highway, Xinjiang -- Tibet Highway, and the Sino-Nepal Friendship Highway from Lhasa via the border town Zhangmu/Dram to Kathmandu,Nepal.

Tibet Attractions
Land of Snows, the Roof of the World, is perhaps can not precisely describe what Tibet is. Shangri-La, maybe! Tibet is an amazing place that is the biggest, highest and the youngest plateau in the world. Tibet has some of the world's most breathtaking natural and culture sights, the Tibetan people are extremely hospitable who warmly invite you and welcome you.
Tibet Culture & Arts

Tibetan culture developed under the influence of a number of factors. Tibet's specific geographic and climactic conditions - its altitude, short growing season, and cold weather- have encouraged reliance on pastoralsm, as well as the development of a different cuisine from surrounding regions. Contact with neighboring countries and cultures- including India, China, and Mongolia-have influenced the development of Tibetan culture, but the Himalayan region's remoteness and inaccessibility have preserved distinctive local influences. Buddhism has exerted a particularly strong influence on Tibetan culture since its introduction in the 7th Century. Art, literature, and music all contain elements of Buddhist religion, and Buddhism itself has adopted a unique form in Tibet, influenced by the Bon tradition and other local beliefs.

Tibetan Art is the synonym of the art of Tibet and the Himalayan kingdoms which is heavily influenced by Tibetan Buddhism. One might say that Tibetan art is as brightly hued as the five-colored flags that represent blue sky, white clouds, red fire, green grass and yellow earth. Visitors to Tibet are invariably impressed by the local people's power of imagination and boldness of expression in their artistic forms. Religious doctrines have not stifled their creativity. Rather, they have given wings to their imagination. Talent, gifted by Heaven and Earth, shines forth in all their works of art, from architecture to clothing and decorations, from furniture to articles of daily use.
