Tibet

China
Tibet is sometimes described as the "roof of the world"; the entire region is on a high plateau and there are many large mountains. The area has its own unique culture, and most travellers will find some of the plants, wildlife and domestic animals quite exotic as well. Entering Tibet you feel as though you've found an entirely different world.

Personal note

"Tibet seemed too vast and inaccessible and strange for anyone to possess it. It looked wonderful to me, like the last place on Earth; like a polar ice cap, but emptier." ~ Paul Theroux, Riding the Iron Rooster
