China - Tibet (Chapter)
This is the Tibet chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.
Perhaps the true highlight of Tibet, though, is the Tibetan people, from crimson-robed monks to wild-haired pilgrims, whose colour, good humour and religious devotion are what makes travelling across the plateau such a profound joy.
- hang out with Tibetan pilgrims in the holy city of Lhasa
- marvel at the murals of angels and demons in the 108 chapels of the Gyantse Kumbum, an architectural wonder
- do the three-day pilgrim circuit around sacred Mt Kailash
- restaurants & accommodation
