Mystical, mysterious, and shrouded in ancient legend, Tibet is called the “Roof of the World” and the “Treasure Chest of the East”.

Among its mountainous terrain, people search for Shambhala, the lost land of heavenly bliss and tranquility. Some come in search of truth, others for an otherworldly experience with a distant culture and system of values and some simply come to conquer its soaring peaks. Andrey Dashin, President of the Alpari Group, Director of the Alpari Charitable Fund and seasoned traveler, recently sat down with us to share what it was he was looking for and what he found in Tibet.
