On WildChina’s eight-day guided trip, Soul of Tibet, you will explore sacred monasteries and pilgrimage routes, meeting artisans and villagers along the way. You will visit Samye Monastery, believed to be Tibet’s first, and Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, founded by the first Dalai Lama. Then meet a Tibetan medicine specialist to learn how tradition plays a role in daily life, and explore the landscape of this western China region, including holy Yamdrok Tso Lake.
