Explore Tibet, a Lhasa-based Tibet tour company, is now offering spiritual and cultural trips to the region. The 8- to 10-day tours include trips to Lhasa, Buddhist monasteries and Tibetan villages.
“Tibet is known as the land of Shambala and mystery because of its rich and breathing culture, mystical monasteries and spiritual environment inherited from centuries and centuries,” Explore Tibet have said. “These trips offer authentic experiences of Tibet by mingling among devoted pilgrims, blessings from ritual ceremonies and breathing in the heady fragrance of incense in the numinous monasteries, as well as visiting typical Tibetan villages and showing you Tibet through Tibetan eyes.”
Buddhism is extremely important to the Tibetans and has a strong influence over all aspects of their lives. This is particularly evident in the Yarlung valley, location of the first ever Tibetan Buddhist monastery and the Chimpu retreat caves.
A warren of caves set in a lush U-shaped valley, Chimpu has some of the most sacred pilgrimage destinations in Tibet, including the cave where Guru Rinpoche first instructed his Tibetan disciples. The Chimpu retreat caves gave monks relief from constant study, but were also crucial in maintaining Buddhist traditions during periods of persecution, and in transmitting teachings before formal monasteries were established.
Here, while hiking through the valley, travelers will visit the monasteries and the caves, meeting hermits and retreatants. Many travelers have written their Tibet Travel reviews after their trips.
“Hiking through the green bushes within the valley’s natural amphitheatre, driving alongside the stunning turquoise Yamdrok Lake and blooming Nyenchen Kangsar glacier under the sunny plateau climate, you will never waste every single minute by discovering new experiences and wonders all the time,” Explore Tibet have said.
Explore Tibet is a locally-owned travel agency committed to responsible Mount Kailash tourism, Tibetan travel permit and sustainable practice.
