Sit down, get comfortable... - Tibet
Sit down, get comfortable...

Unless you are a world-class biker or have all the time in the world, the only practical way to get around Tibet is by Toyota Landcruiser. Why Toyota? I don't know. But that seems to be the vehicle of choice for just about every tour guide and company.

Even looking at a map and understanding, intellectually, the distances involved was not sufficient preparation for the number of hours spent sitting down getting from place to place. They may not be the world's most comfortable vehicles (at least not for hours on end and days without end), but I can personally attest that they are among the world's best at negotiating the sometimes tortuous terrain of Tibet.

All in all, we came to love our little Landcruiser and you will too--if for no other reason than that you have little choice!
