Standing at an average height of 4,900 m (16,000 ft), Tibet reigns as the highest region on Earth. Tourism in Tibet revolves around the area's intense natural and cultural heritage, with Tibetan Buddhist sites and serious mountaineering drawing most visitors to the region. See the home of dalai lamas and their summer palaces, and take part in a meditation with monks. Outdoor adventures can take you to the world's highest saltwater, as well as one of the world's highest monasteries. Home to legendary Mount Everest and other soaring peaks, this "roof of the world" beckons to adventurous climbers, while several of China's major rivers have their source on the Tibetan Plateau. During your tour of Tibet, be sure to try some of the regional staples: roasted barley, yak meat, and yak butter tea. Plan your trip to Tibet and other China destinations using our handy China online travel route planner.
