Tibet one of those extraordinary destination
where indeed adventure lurks around every corner! Adventure on the
road is never short on the beautiful
Trans Himalayan drive, through mountain, passes, promising a panorama
of a cultural and scenic diversity unsurpassable anywhere.
It culminates on an arid plateau - a varitable treasure trove of
architectural masterpieces - the Buddhist monasteries of Drepung,
once the largest in the country The Jhokhang - a spiritual center,
and the awesome palaces of the Dalai Lama - Norbulinka (the summer
palace) and the Potala (the traditional seat). Ancient Barkhor Bazaar
still barters the brick - a - brac, in a region that’s not
so much a little strange as utterly surreal.
The tourist corridor between Zhangmu on the Nepalese border and
Lhasa is relatively well trodden these days, although by no means
overcrowded, and offers side trips to the Everest Base Camp.
