Tibet is the most mysterious place on our planet! It is located so high above the sea level that it is called the "Roof of the World". All the "powerful" people of the world searched for sacred knowledge here, discovering superhuman abilities. A country where the majority of the population devotes their lives to the development of the Spirit, repeating ancient texts for several hours a day. All world religions tell us that the Gods lived on high altitude, and therefore... it is in Tibet that we are looking for the famous land of the Gods, Shambhala!
WILL IT BE
I invite you to discover the secrets of Tibet in the most comfortable way, without trekking in the mountains. An overview of all the main points of interest in comfortable transport and the best hotels. We'll start with the capital of Nepal, the city of Kathmandu with a 3000-year history. You will visit the capital of Tibet, the mysterious city of Lhasa, the "city of the Gods", which was opened to the world only at the end of the 20th century.
You will walk through the rooms of the majestic palace of the supreme rulers of the country called Potala, see the golden treasures of the largest temples and fortresses of the country, learn what the "dispute" of monks is, feel the taste of antiquity in the largest library of Tibet and try Himalayan tea. And the highest mountain in the world - Everest awaits you! Luxury adventure in Tibet - lets go!

"Потрясающее путешествие, которое во многом изменило мое понимание жизни. Спасибо Тамаре Читая, она дала очень много знаний о Непале и поделилась секретами археологии этого региона, мы даже побывали в закрытом частном музее, где хранилась самая старая книга религии Бон, тибетского шаманизма, написанная на коже яка - такое увидеть можно только с ней! Я влюбилась в Гималаи, благодаря этой писательнице-исследователю!"

"An amazing trip that changed my understanding of life in many ways. Thanks to Tamara Chitaia, she gave a lot of knowledge about Nepal and shared the secrets of the archeology of this region, we even visited a closed private museum where we saw the oldest book of the Bon religion, Tibetan shamanism, written on the skin, you can only see such a thing with her! I fell in love with the Himalayas, thanks to this researcher!"

"So the magical journey to Kathmandu and Tibet ended. Today we are flying home. Emotions are running high, impressions are a size of the sea! I thank the team of organizers of Chitaia Club and personally Tamara and George Chitaia for the wonderful trip. It was very unusual and full of knowledge. My ascend on the pass of the sacred Mount Kailash at 5800 m simply took me to a different level of life, even if my face was slightly burned. Communication with Tibetan pilgrims revealed a lot of new things about this closed mountain people. Thank you, Tamara! I recommend it to everyone!"

I want to thank Tamara Chitaia and her Club for a wonderful and informative expedition to Uzbekistan. For the program of the tour - rich, interesting, for the tour guides. I got unforgettable impressions from the trip to the bottom of the Aral Sea - it's something cosmic and Martian, swimming in the sea, sleeping in yurts, meeting the dawn, opening an open-air museum (only we know about it). We saw the Ustyurt plateau, the "cemetery of ships" and a morning walk on the camel Sara! And I also fell in love with Bukhara. What a bath there!!! In short, TRAVEL WITH TAMARA! ENJOY LIFE!!!
