Travel to Tibet
Discover Asia's Spiritual Heart in Tibet
The region of Tibet has become a byword for spirituality, with Buddhism reflected in nearly every aspect of its art and culture. Let A&K reveal this spellbinding destination, where centuries-old monasteries still ring with the early morning chants of monks and prayer flags flap in the wind against a background of majestic blue skies.
Lhasa is the cultural heart of Tibet, and many of the most spectacular sites you see in the region with A&K are here, including Potala Palace, the traditional home of the Dalai Lama. Beyond the massive seventeenth-century structure that houses more than 1,000 rooms and 10,000 shrines within, visit Sanggye Dhungu, where hundreds of Buddha statues are carved into a cliff wall. With A&K, get under the skin of Tibet's deeply spiritual and ancient culture by bearing witness to monks raucously debating over Buddhism at the Sera Monastery and meeting the nuns of Ani Tsankhung Nunnery.
A journey to Tibet with A&K is an eye-opening experience into a region little visited by the ordinary traveller. Discover its heart and soul on the journey to the Roof of the World.
