Leaving Lhasa in our 4 wheel drive, we’ll travel through this amazing country, staying in the best traditional hotels Tibet has to offer. Thoroughly exploring the towns of Gyantse and Shigatse we visit traditional monasteries and fully immerse ourselves in the Buddhist culture.
Along the Highway we travel through some of the most amazing landscapes on Earth.
