I visited Tibet on a Rickshaw trip and it truly is a once-in-a-lifetime type of trip. My friends and I took an incredible 50-hour train from Beijing to Lhasa; the roof of the world. I was blown away by the sounds of the prayer wheels, colourful prayer flags, smell of incense and the sight of the faithful pilgrims prostrate around the temple. Watching the sunrise over Everest was a highlight I will never forget.
I spent 10 days travelling through Tibet and can confidently say it is truly magical. I still recall with complete clarity stepping into the crowds of Lhasa’s Jokhang temple, engulfed by incense and surrounded by Buddhist mantras. The devout spirituality pervades everything you see, hear, touch and smell from the distinct taste of yak butter tea to the soaring mountain peaks. I would go again in a heartbeat.
