Mount Kailash TibetTibet is a huge country (or Chinese Autonomous Region for others) in Central Asia and the indigenous home to the Tibetan people. The average elevation is a stunning 4900 metres, which makes it the highest region on Earth and often it is also called "The Roof of the World." Tibet is bordered by China in the North and East, India, Nepal and Bhutan in the South and Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India in the West. 
The capital of Tibet is Lhasa where the famous Potala palace (former winter palace of the religious leader Dalai Lama) and the Jokhang temple (the most sacred and important temple of the country) are located. Because of its unique environmental, cultural and historical character we kind of regard Tibet as a separate country on this website. The dry and high plateau with huge mountain peaks (like Mount Everest or Mount Kailash) in combination with beautiful and impressive monasteries and deep blue lakes make Tibet a very special (trekking) destination. Mount Everest (Qomolungma in Tibetan) is the highest peak (8848 metres) of the country and the planet. Mount Kailash (6638 metres) is the holiest mountain in Asia and a sacred place for Hindus, Jains, Bons and Buddhists.
