Centuries of isolation have lent the kingdom of Tibet a deep sense of spirituality and mysticism. Once upon a time you could only get there after conquering treacherous terrain and fierce warrior monks, but now – despite the complex political situation – Tibet’s open for travellers to explore. Surround yourself with smoke, incense and the murmuring of the faithful in endless temples and monasteries and experience giddy Everest views. Cross high-altitude passes, twist through towering peaks past plodding yaks, and discover contemporary Tibetan life – a mix of pilgrims and pop music, monks and mobile phones.

Tibet is more amazing than you've imagined - go see this unique and wonderful place and meet the warm and friendly TIbetan people! And hope that you have Pema as your Group Leader - Pema is a bright, thoughtful, energetic, well-organized fellow who is passionate about Tibet and who made it all happen for each of us. And he fixed it whenever things didn't go exactly as planned. Plan for c o l d weather at EBC - wool, mittens, jacket - it's cold and windy at 5,000 meters.
