In Lhasa we explore the Potala Palace and the lively Barkhor Bazaar. We then cross the magnificent Tibetan Plateau to visit remote hamlets and striking fortress-monasteries where flickering yak-butter lamps illuminate ancient Buddhist frescoes. At the foot of Everest, directly below the mountain’s sheer North Face, the dazzling glaciers of the world’s highest peak seem almost close enough to touch.
