Luxury Tibet Tours – Tibet is without doubt one of the most beautiful, tragic and uplifting corners of Asia. An ambiguous relationship with China came back to haunt Tibet when China invaded in 1950, reclaiming the plateau for the ‘motherland’. Today an immigrant-fuelled economic boom has transformed towns across the plateau into miniature Chinese cities. But scratch under the surface and you’ll find the Tibetan spirit still strong. Join pilgrims for a tour of centuries-old monastery, a circuit of a holy mountain or simply a bowl of yak butter tea and you’ll find an irrepressible, intensely likeable people whose Budhhist faith remains the cornerstone of their cultural survival.
