On Top of the World
Come celebrate “I do” on the top of the world. Snowy peaks welcome honeymooners to a vacation of seclusion and mountain charm. Literally the “roof of the world” this highest point on our little spinning sphere offers Buddhist monasteries overlooking the mountain tops along with the palaces of the Dalai Lama. The cold weather and beautiful scenery make for the perfect snuggling opportunities and romantic memories you will remember for the rest of your lives.
When to go:May, June, July and August are the very best times to visit Tibet. This is when the weather is at its warmest, although it’s never truly warm in Tibet. The scenery during this time is also at its best as the sunny skies offer breathtaking views and pristine photography opportunities.
When not to go:October marks the beginning of winter when the temperatures drop to sub zero. If you don’t want to spend your trip bundled like Eskimos, try to avoid coming to Tibet in the winter months.
Culture shock factor:HUGE . . . but don’t let this steer you away from the adventure of Tibet. The main factor of culture shock here is that the people are extremely religious. You shouldn’t photograph anyone without their permission nor touch anyone on the head. You should also avoid wearing shorts or short shirt inside of monasteries. In addition, always remove your hat before entering a monastery and walk clockwise around it and any other religious structures. You can also get dog and horse meat here . . . you shouldn’t eat it however.
What to do while you’re here:Of course, you’ll want to stop in to see the famed monasteries and see the palaces of the Dalai Lama. Chitwan National Park is another must. Here you can ride atop elephants in search of tigers! Lake Phewa makes another great stop. You should also consider taking an air flight above the Himalayan Mountain to capture the most breathtaking views. Tibet has much to offer and many memories to be made. Just remember to pay careful attention to respect the religious beliefs of the people here and you’ll be well on your way to fitting in like a pro.
