Back to Tibet - two spectacular new holidays
After a period of visa uncertainties the Chinese authorities have simplified access to this ancient centre of Buddhism, allowing Mountain Kingdoms to offer more holidays in Tibet.
Tibet's breathtaking high-altitude landscape is pierced with sacred mountains and ancient towns. It is a mysterious country once known as the 'forbidden kingdom', and isolated from the rest of the world. Tibet's unique cultural and spiritual identity has been fiercely preserved by its proud people and the exiled Dalai Lama encourages Westerners to visit his country to experience the true nature of Tibet for themselves.
New holidays to Tibet
We have introduced an additional two holidays in Tibet for 2014, including the Definitive Cultural Tour of Tibet and the Cultural Highlights of Bhutan and Tibet. Mountain Kingdoms' Tibet collection now varies from a 15-day tour to a 23-day strenuous Mount Kailash trek.
In 2017, Mountain Kingdoms MD, Steve Berry, organised and led an expedition into the remote mountains surrounding Gangkar Punsum - the highest unclimbed mountain in the world. Accompanied by an Icon Films film crew and commissioned by Discovery Channel's Animal Planet, Steve's brief was to search for evidence of the Yeti.
