Apart from being home to some of the most beautiful and exotic natural destinations and wonders of the World (including the Himalayas, lakes, and dense forest among others), Tibet also has as a unique and splendid culture of its own. Shining like a peel in the world and sitting on top of it, the fascinating culture and art forms of the country Tibet have originated to their present form through centuries of peaceful interaction with the cultures, religions, and beliefs of the surrounding regions.

The Versatility and Uniqueness of Tibetan Culture

Other major monasteries of the region that will help you explore Tibetan artistic, religious, and cultural aspects include the Samye monastery, Olka Cholung monastery, and Ganden monastery.
