For centuries Tibet has fascinated travellers from around the world. Remote and once difficult to reach, it lies at an average height of nearly 5000m above sea level in the world's highest region. This Himalayan area is, of course, home to the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest or Qomolangma, as the Tibetans know it. The stunning views of countless, snow-capped mountains are unforgettable, as are the beautiful clear waters of lakes such as Yandrok Lake, which the Tibetan people regard as a holy site.
