    Tibet's vast and dramatic plains will make you feel as it you have entered another world and time. From the mystical capital of Lhasa, which means “Land of the Gods”, to Gyantse, Shigatse and Tsetang, the Tibetan Plateau is scattered with remote monasteries, palaces and ancient sites. Tibet is the perfect destination for those seeking isolation and spiritual awakening – for centuries Lhasa was home to the Dalai Lamas and it still attracts Buddhist pilgrims. The landscape feels achingly desolate at times, but the drama of the architecture and the traditional Tibetan crafts and culture make for a fascinating experience.
