Aug. 8, 2010 - PRLog -- Highland Asia Travel offers and enriching cultural tour introducing three Himalayan countries, Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan in a single adventure! A breathtaking flight over the Himalayas whisks us to the incomparable Tibet. In Lhasa, Tibet’s long-forbidden capital city at 12,000 feet, we’ll tour the major monuments, including the legendary gold-roofed, thousand-room Potala Palace. We’ll walk pilgrim trails, hike up to ancient ridge-top monasteries, meet a colorful array of people, from nomads to lamas, and relish in some of the most majestic mountain scenery on earth! Come take a step back in time and join us on this enriching, non-trekking journey for an eye-opening look into traditions and cultures far removed from those in the West!

Fly to Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu, an unforgettable melting pot of Hindu and Buddhist cultures. In the local markets and bazaars, we’ll rub shoulders with some of Nepal’s very diverse people; explore its wealth of Hindu and Buddhist sites, as well as charming valley towns like Bhaktapur, with its well-preserved 17th-Century architecture.

Another spectacular flight brings us to the tiny Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan where we will feel time has moved back. Explore the pastoral back roads of Bhutan, a true bastion of tradition in an uncertain world, where we find an independent people who have not rejected their ancient spiritual heritage for modern ways. We’ll visit the Shangri-La setting of the Paro Valley, the central Bhutanese town of Punakha, with its huge, spectacular monastery set by the river, and the capital city of Thimphu.
