the Songtsam Yunnan to Tibet route is designed for intrepid travellers to discover the region’s living heritage through comfort,authenticity, and an enlightened spirit of adventure.
Extended across dramatic altitudes within the Tibetan plateau, the area is home to a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the demographic contains Tibetans and most of the twenty-five ethnic monitories found in Yunnan province,
many of who still follow ancient traditions and customs.
For centuries people have been fascinated with the idea of Shambhala,
