If there is a travel
which can be qualified as exceptional, it certainly the travel
from Kathmandu to Lhasa. Mysterious land, mythical country, Tibet
or "Roof of the world" has remained very authentic
because of its severe climate and the absence of communication
which have protected it for long-time from foreign influences.
Despite the Chinese efforts to suppress during the Cultural Revolution,
the religion, the traditions & the life around the remaining
monasteries are still as alive and well preserved as Alexandra-David
NEEL described at the beginning of this century. This is a land
of predilection for photography, wild landscapes, the life and
the Tibetan Buddhist religion.
But we do not go to Tibet for its gastronomy nor for the quality
of its hotels. Both can be qualified as very rudimentary and
often very precarious; we advise that for the future travellers.
Altitude is the next thing to be fully aware of. Lhassa its at
the altitude of 3600m and the most part of your journey will
be on the average altitude of 4000m and plus.
