Unravel the mystery of the Roof of the World ! Welcome to Tibet, the land of mysteries and legends situated so high on the Himalayas,that it is called the Roof of the world. According to one belief, the only survivor om the side of the defeated Kauravas in the Mahabharata fied to Tibet and formed his own dynasty at the beginning of Kalluga. The year, which according to some legenda was 3010 BC, strangely corresponds with Indian myths.

Early documentation of Tibet Shows that Buddhism came to Tibet in 7th century AD. Buddhism influences every aspect of daily life and is evident in the ubiquitous shrines, monasteries, offerings and traditions that decorate the otherwise simple lifestyle of the people.

With the pictures Mt. Kailash and Mansarovar Lake in its bosom, a world heritage site in the majestic Potala Palace, monasteries that elevate and inspire, Tibet is just the place to explore and unravel new and unforgettable experiences.
