Tibet is certainly worth a visit.
Tibet is the highest country in the world, with not only the highest mountainpeaks, but also the mean height of the country. Lhasa, the capital is the highest capital of the world at an altitude of 3500 meters.
Buddhism is the main faith and the entire Tibetan Autonomous Region is filled with monasteries, buddhist monks and prayerflags.

Much more about this holy land and its customs at our Tibet page.
