Tibetan Buddhism is extremely important to the people of Tibet and their culture.

Because Tibet spans the world’s highest and largest plateau, many portions are remote and uninhabited, but there is still much to see in places such as Lahasa, Gyantse, and a number of holy places and natural reserves.
Visit the Potala Palace, the former residence of the Dalai Lama, and the Jokhang Temple, considered the spiritual center of Tibet, and also see the Norbulingkha, once the summer palace of the Dalai Lamas. Visit Drepung monastery, one of the largest in Tibet, and Sera monastery, founded in 1419. Enjoy a day excursions to Ganden and Tsurphu monasteries. Visit Tsedong, where the first known building still in existence in Tibet lies.
Travel over the passes of Kampa La and Karo La along the turquoise blue Yamdrok Lake. Visit the small town of Gyantse on the Nyang River and continue to Shigatse, stopping en route at the Shalu Monastery. In Shigatse, visit Tashilhunpo Monastery to watch pilgrims offering hunks of oil into tub-like butter lamps, and travel over the Himalayas to Kathmandu. Visit Sakya Monastery; pass through Xegar, whose “Shining Crystal Monastery” once housed 400 monks; drive across the Tibetan Plateau to Zhangmu; and take a side trip to Everest Base Camp.
