It’s snow covered plateaus are the highest in the world and apart from Everest, which Tibetans see from ‘the other side’, many mountains are over 15000 feet. Lhasa, at (3590 meters), is Tibet’s religious, cultural and economic centre. The 1000 room Potala Palace physically dominates Lhasa City.
Bhutan – the Land of the Thunder Dragon. Being the last remaining great Himalayan kingdom, it was restricted to all outsiders until recent years.
