Tibet Bike Tour

Tibet was opened to tourism in 1985 and developed its unique culture and religion independently. Tibetan Buddhism contains many elements of their older religion,” Bon Po” which worshipped the sky, moon, sun, fire, soil and even evil spirits and this is why a monastery such as Tashilhunpo contains thousands of unique statues, paintings (thangka), religious and historical books that to visit in detail would take weeks and their emotions show that religion still holds a very important place in their daily lives.

Extremely remote and isolated by the most formidable Himalayas ranges is a fascinating world of timeless splendor, unique tradition and breathtaking scenery awaits all travelers to the Roof of the World.
