Tibet is a fascinating region to visit!  It is said to be the highest region on earth with an average elevation of 16,000 ft.  Nature and history fanatics would certainly love the stunning beauty of the area complimenting each geographic history.  Check the famous Jokhang Temple which was declared as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.  It is said to be the most sacred and important temple in Tibet. Cast your wish as you turn the prayer wheel.   Your journey includes the popular sites of Great Wall in Beijing, Terracotta Warriors and Horses in Xi'an, and the adorable Bun Area in Shanghai.  They are equally interesting and enlightening of what China was yesterday.  This two week itinerary is insightful, memorable, and priced reasonably low!
