Tibet Culture or landscape tours with more upgrades 2013
Springfield, MO (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
For those looking to deepen their connection with nature and culture on their trip to Tibet, Tibet Travel Agent TCTS has begun offering new upgrades to their existing tours in 2013. From now on, travelers can add on an extra day or two or more to include all of Tibet’s classic destinations. Using the Tibet Landscape and Culture tour as a building block, travel groups can customize their trip to include the destinations that fascinate them the most. A travel agent will assist clients with the additional planning and can offer suggestions on how travelers can become more acquainted with the natural scenery and people of Tibet.
There are numerous options for seeing culture on tour in Tibet. To learn about Tibetan Buddhism visit Ganden or Samye Monastery. For the adventurous, it is even possible to trek between the two. Ganden and Samye Monasteries are among the “great three” monasteries in Tibet (the other is Drepung Monastery, which is most easily visited while staying in Lhasa). Also, a visit to the Yarlung Valley is certainly a worthwhile addition to any Tibet tours. The Yarlung Valley is the cradle of Tibetan civilization. Legend says that this is where the first Tibetan people originated and where Tibet’s first palace, Yungbulakang Palace, was built high atop a hill overlooking the Yarlung Valley. Yungbulakang still stands today and is said to be over 2000 years old and is where Tibetan Buddhism was handed down from the sky. Travelers can hike up to the palace or ride a horse for a small fee.
With endless mountain vistas and alpine lakes, one could spend a lifetime immersing their self in the scenery. Witness life in the countryside on one of Tibet’s famous treks, or visit a meditation cave to get more in touch with your inner self. Travelers can stay in one of Mt. Everest’s tent hotels, visit Mt. Kailash, or enjoy some of the lesser-known and more challenging adventures such as the trek through Kharta Valley. The distances between these places in Tibet are vast. Traveling between each destination is an experience in itself. Don’t hesitate to ask the driver to stop for photos along the way.
Spending some extra time with Tibet’s people to learn about their culture can turn a couple weeks away from home into a enriching experience that will that sticks with travelers for the rest of their live. A native Tibetan guide is an essential resource for this kind of adventure; they are able to provide a context for understanding local culture and natural scenery. Guides are passionate about sharing where they come from, so make sure to ask questions along the way. With all the options for travel in Tibet, upgrading a tour is the key to maximizing its value.
