Tibet is an awesome travel place, so much history and mystery. Mount Everest is many travelers’ dream. Although Mount Everest is attractive, and to see it closely is every traveler’s dream, the trip is not suitable for the faint-hearted. Altitude sickness is the biggest trouble, and almost everyone is affected at Mt. Everest Base Camp, at altitude 5,200 meters. Travel to Mount Everest is relatively expensive. Some travelers prefer to join a group to share the price. But it is better to take a private tour, so that you will be cared for individually by a private guide. Any small health problem may become serious quickly at such altitudes.
Like mountains, lakes are considered sacred by Tibetan people.They are believed to be the dwelling places for protective deities. This is also believed to give these sacred places a spiritual power. There are many sacred lakes in Tibet, and some of these are very important religious focal points. One such sacred lake is Namtso Lake. This is the largest lake in the Tibet. Namtso means “Heavenly Lake” and has a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains over its turquoise waters and especially offers fantastic sunrise and sunset view. Namtso is one of the holy lakes and one of the four “Great Wrathful Lakes” guarded by the goddess DorjeGegkyi Tso. The scenery of Namtso Lake is very surreal. Its crystal-clear waters reflect the snow-capped mountains, open grassland and the clouds in the sky. The grassland is dotted with yak herds and local nomads. Namtso Lake has five uninhabited islands of reasonable size. Like the hills around the lake, these islands have been used spiritual retreat by pilgrims who walk over the lake’s frozen surface at the end of winter.

Yarlung Zangbo River, the world highest river, turns south suddenly in Mainling County and cuts the Himalayas Mountain into two sections. Then the river runs through a narrow passage between the two 7,000-meter high peaks of Namjagbarwa and Jialabailei, forming the deepest, narrowest and longest canyon in the world- the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon which stretches 496 km long and averages over 5,000 m deep. The diversified climatic zones distributed vertically in the canyon determine its vertical distribution of diversified vegetation and numerous wild animals. Nearly 5,000 species of vegetation have already been found here.
