interactive tourist map of TIBET


A fascinating land with countless monasteries, the world’s highest mountain and (in the true sense of the word..) breathtaking landscapes.
It is not allowed to visit Tibet alone without a local guide. All foreign citizens must be in a tourist group (any number of travelers) organized by a travel agency.
Tourists must be accompanied by a guide during the whole visit, including transportation.
