Tibet Autonomous Region of China offers one of the most unique and unforgettable experience a traveller can hope from a destination. Located on Tibetan Plateau in Asia with an average altitude of above 4,000 meters, Tibet is the highest altitude location and is one of the remotest places on the planet.
Tibet’s remoteness and high altitude are combined with very mountainous terrain and make Tibet relatively difficult and expensive to access. Until 2006, flying was the only feasible travel option to Tibet and today, Tibet train is a good alternative. Still, the distances are huge here as Tibet is thousands of kilometers away from many major Chinese cities.
