Tibet is an almost mythical destination, and yet the reality still manages to surpass expectations. Extraordinarily beautiful, the vast high plateau of Tibet is commonly called 'The Roof of the World', with the capital of Lhasa at an altitude of 3,600m above sea level.
Dominated by Potala Palace - once the seat of the government of Tibet, and the tomb of former Dalai Lamas - Lhasa is a city steeped in history and tradition.
See the Jokhang Temple with its crowds of pilgrims, head into the wilds of the Tibetan countryside to visit the famous fortress of Gyantse, and stand in awe of the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest with Imaginative Traveller.
