Why Trek Plateau?
Tibet is the world’s highest and largest plateau. Sometimes metaphorically described as the “ Roof of the World”. The stunning landscapes and breathtaking nature of Tibet is one of the prime reason why people visiting despites of many other reasons. Its true that the beauty of nature can have a profound effect upon our senses. The materialistic century of this world is drastically affecting on our day to day lives and we becoming so isolated from nature. That many people wants to connect with nature and enjoy nature’s beauty. Walking or strolling or hiking or trekking makes them reconnect with nature and appreciate the mother nature. People wants to hike or trekking in a place there are limited modern technology’s effect. Tibet is now has become of the most active place for the travelers and adventurous. The nature of Tibet, mountains, temples, lakes gives us delight in. Sometime, we feel so great that the nature of the Tibet is so live.
What is adventure?
Adventure to me means stepping out of your own comfort zone and taking a risk or challenging yourself from doing a new thing or from a different perspective. While, it means when you are doing something, butterflies in your stomach won’t leave rather its due to the fear of new thing or new method or excitement. Adventure is a process of exploring while learning from the surrounding or learning of self or self capability. Adventure in traveling is anticipating of something unusual even when you boarding a plane with unexpected unusual people, places and cultures escorting you. Where you allow yourself to experience unusual practices and coping up with less privileged communities or societies. It’s like trying to do something regular in unfamiliar environment.

What to Prepare when you trek Tibet?
When we go for trekking Tibet, there are things that you will need to get prepared before ahead.
Travel Gear: How lightweight can you pack? Depending on the length of your trip and where you go; you can get away with a minimal amount of clothing. One medium-large backpack or rolling duffle and a day pack should be just right for a 2-4 week trip. We recommend packing your bags and walking around the block with them several times. If it feels heavy, figure out what you can eliminate!
Tibetans dress fairly conservatively, and while many Tibetan women wear long skirts, females should not feel obliged to dress up. However, shorts are not appropriate for men or women, so don’t get too comfortable. If you plan to do your own laundry, select quick-drying material, as the climate is humid and you cannot always rely on the sun to dry your clothes.
