Tibet was opened to tourism in 1985. Before this, it avoided influence from the West and this country developed its unique culture and religion independently. Since Tibet was governed by the spiritual leaders, monasteries and religious institutions were the backbones of power so the importance and prestige were shown by the size and magnificent architecture of these buildings.

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.

The monasteries are crowded by pilgrims who often travel long distances to fulfill their vows and wishes and their emotions show that religion still holds a very important place in their daily lives.

Your daily breakfast included in the prices will be served at every accommodation staying overnight.
