Tibet Tours – The North Road
What you will See & Do
For a close-up experience of the vast spaces of the Tibetan Plateau; geographically, politically and historically separate from central Tibet. Isolated valleys and tribal villages are host to some very important gompas and other sacred sites and offer an unforgettable and unique glimpse of a rapidly changing world - a region that is neglected by guidebooks and so less visited by western travellers.
Venturing beyond the traditional tourist trail, exploring the remote regions of Kongpo and Kham can be a rewarding experience. This region boasts a unique blend of cultural and natural diversity with snow-capped mountains, verdant valleys, grasslands, and forested hills. Witness the traditional lifestyle of nomadic herders, yak-wool traders, and farmers. You can visit some of the most significant Buddhist sites in the region, such as Dzogchen Monastery, Yarchen Gar, and Yumbu Lhakhang, the first palace of Tibet. Don't miss out on the opportunity to witness the colorful festivals celebrated by the locals in these regions.
