Tibet - The great Himalayan plateau
Tibet is the homeland of the Tibetan people and other ethnic groups such as the Lhobas and Qiang. Tibet is the highest region on earth elevated at an average height of 16,000 feet (Approx. 5300 meters)! Tibet's economy is predominantly based on subsistence agriculture but in the recent decades, tourism is also emerging as a major sector contributing substantially to its economy.
Tibet is rich in religion and history. From its inception in 233 A.D. to Dalai Lama's exile in 1959, Buddhism has played a large role in the nation's past. A series of emperors ruled the Tibetan Empire between the 7th and 11th centuries, heralding the rule of three separate dynasties. As you immerse yourself in Tibetan culture, you will experience Tibet's fascinating history of upheavals and triumphs firsthand.
