The moniker, ‘roof of the world’, is apt for Tibet in many ways. Not only does the region stand amidst the Himalayas, but also has an otherworldly simplistic charm that is bound to enthrall the traveller. For this, one should make a trip to Tibet.
Affixed in a time-warp, Tibet is a window to how the world looked many centuries ago, unaffected by western influences, content and wonderfully aloof from the rest of the world. It is a treasure trove of nature and Buddhist history and the original home to Dalai Lama, before he was exiled to India. A spiritual vibe hangs thickly in the air in Tibet. This, and the company of the Himalayas are compelling reasons for travellers to go here.
