ROOFTOP OF THE WORLD
Four Seasons Vacations believes in customising your travel.
Standing 4500 feet above sea level, lying in the north eastern part of the imposing Himalayas in Asia with the world's two highest summits, Mount Everest and K2, the Tibet plateau stretching across an amazing 2.5 million square kilometres is aptly christened "Rooftop of the World".
Buddhism plays a very important role and casts its influence on every aspect of the lives of Tibetans. It's capital Lhasa (Tibetan for Place of Gods) boasts of World Heritage sites - the Potala Palace and the Norbulingka. Important rivers like the Yellow River, Ganges, Salween and the Indus originate in Tibet, and it has many picturesque lakes including the Mansarovar.
