Tibet Destinations Guide is to introduce “TIBET”, which is referred as the “Roof of the World,” a land so rich in cultural tradition and in religion along with unique landscape. Tibet is surrounded on three sides by vast mountains including, the Kun-Lun Mountains of Central Asia in the north, the Karakoram range in the west and the Himalayas in the south.
In the southern part of Tibet, some of the world’s highest mountains define its southern border. These are as follows: Mt Everest (8,848 meters), the highest mountain in the world; Namcha Barwa (7,756 meters), where the Brahmaputra carve a fantastic gorge to enter India. Between the two ranges lie the river-valley region extending about 1,000 kilometers from west to east. The Brahmaputra River (known in Tibetan as The Yarlung Tsangpo) flows from west to east through most of Tibet. In addition to Brahmaputra, Tibet is also a source for other large rivers including, indus and Satluj, which cut across the Himalayas creating gorges and flowing towards the Indian plains.
