The Best Moments of Tibet Tour is on the Road

Latest Update: November,06 2019

The vastness of the Tibetan plateau means that there are long distances to travel from one place to another. You can find yourself traveling hundreds of kilometers a day to get to the next amazing site. However, while the attractions are amazing, often the travel can be just as interesting, and things that happen along the road can make your day.

Enjoy the Sunbathing in Tibet

The high Tibetan plateau climate means that the sun is strong enough for you to sunbathe on the shores of the lake. The thinner atmosphere means that the sun is stronger than at sea level for this latitude, and sunbathing can be done even in winter at some of the most beautiful spots across the plateau. However, do apply sunscreen to avoid the sunburn.

Explore the Local Market
