TibetCtrip.com, one Lhasa based Tibet travel agent, has recently been helping tourists understand Tibet travel. By breaking Tibet down into five new distinct travel regions, travelers can customize tours to their specific interests. Those looking for cultural experiences may want to focus their time in Yarlung Valley and Lhasa, while those looking for adventure may be best suited by a visit to Mt. Everest or the Mt. Kailash-Lake Manasarovar region. Tibet is diverse land, taking time to learn about what each region has to offer is the best way of maximizing the value of any Tibet tour.
Lhasa and Yarlung Valley:
Travelers looking for a focused Tibet Culture tour, without sacrificing opportunities to see beautiful scenery, will want to spend most of their time in this region. Learn about Tibetan culture at places like Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, and while watching the debating monks of Sera Monastery. Then escape Lhasa to delve into the history of Yarlung Valley, cradle of Tibetan civilization.
This area includes Gyantse, Shigatse, and Lake Yamdrok. Another great stop for travelers focused on culture! Shigatse is home to Tashilhunpo Monastery, seat of the Panchen Lama and home to a towering statue of the Maitreya Buddha.
