Remember when your vacation was ruined by a rushed schedule, stressed-out travel partners, or disappointing tourist traps? I’m frazzled just by thinking about them.

Travelling should be about free-spirited exploration and fulfilling escapades. But how often do you feel relaxed and at ease when you travel, especially when you’ve had little time to plan?

Thankfully, we’ve found the top five places to retreat to when you want to purge your life of stress – and I mean deep cleansing, like a refreshing and detoxifying spa.

Tibet – Mystical Paradise

You don’t have to haul yourself halfway across the world to visit snow-capped mountains. The Tibetan mountain range – which includes the Himalayas – is the highest region on Earth, and spending a few days here is sure to also lift your spirits.

Camp with the yaks at the base of the mountains as you look up at the wondrous white tips piercing the blue sky; trek up the highest peak and feel on top of the world; or go on a pilgrimage of self-actualisation as you visit the monasteries in the highlands.

There are different itineraries available for every kind of traveller, so start booking your Tibetan retreat today. You can even go hunting for a yeti if you wish!
