  • GlobeRovers Rating: 9 / 10
  • Buzz Line: "The Roof of the World"
  • Eagle Eye: Snow capped mountains, glaciers, moonscapes with sandstorms, people in traditional dress, ancient temples and monasteries, incredible people and food!
  • Hot Spots: The monasteries and temples of Lhasa, Shigatse, Gyatse, etc, Karola Glacier, Yamtso Tso Lake, Mount Everest and several other high peaks of the Himalayas.
  • The Low-down: Occupying China insists on foreign travelers to apply for a travel permit and to prebook a guide and vehicle (at exorbitant costs). Make sure to cover everything possible in the contract with the agent (who would be eager to rip-off travelers where possible).
