You can make a trip to Tibet, but you might come away disappointed. Since the Chinese invasion over 60 years ago, it no longer reflects the unique Tibetan Buddhist culture that it once had. Traveling to Tibet is expensive as well as your movements are controlled by the government.But you can still discover the land of Tibet. It is much closer than you think, and definitely a lot cheaper. The Manaslu area of northern Nepal is the real Tibet in this day and age.The Manaslu region is home to the 8th highest mountain in the world. Rising to an elevation of 8,163 m/26,759 ft., it’s a massive mountain that is sublime in the skyline. Its name means “Spirit Mountain”, and it was named by the Tibetan people who immigrated here over a millennium ago.
The Tibetans here have maintained their unique culture. It is not uncommon to find one women married to several men (this is one of the few places in the world where polyandry is practiced). There are many incredible mountain Buddhist monasteries where the Dalai Lama is still venerated opening by the residents.The Manaslu region of northern Nepal is a wonderful place to visit. Filled with mystery, deep in spirituality as well as incredible beauty, it is one of those places that do not receive a lot of visitors each year. It is here that you can learn for yourself the wonderfully unique culture of the real Tibet that has been renown over the centuries.
