Gyllenhaal Plans Route To Tibet

Actress MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL is preparing to jet off to Tibet and Nepal for a three-week adventure - but she doesn't know how she's going to get there.

The MONA LISA SMILE star has decided to head to Asia for a much-needed break, and she's now busy trying to work out what route she'll take to arrive at her destinations.

She says, "I'm going to Nepal and Tibet and it's incredibly difficult to figure out how to get there.

"I spent (a lot of) time... on the phone trying to figure out how to get there. But one of my two best girlfriends lives half the time in Tibet and Nepal. She speaks Tibetan and she said, 'You really need to come.'

"I think the way I'm gonna do it is I'm gonna fly from New York to Delhi, Delhi to Kathmandu and Kathmandu to Lhasa in Tibet.

"To be honest, I know almost nothing (about Kathmandu) and usually when I travel I'll read a novel or something that comes from that place. I'll do some research. But I think I'm just kinda free-falling into this because my friend really is an expert. I think I'm gonna just trust her."
