Tibet, situated in the north East Asia, is the vast and arid plateau surrounded by the highest mountains of the earth. Also known as the ‘Roof of the World’, it is located at an altitude of about 16000 feet above the sea level. This vast plateau is the source of several major rivers like Yellow River, Indus River, Ganges, Mekong, Salween and the Yarlung Zangbo River (Brahmaputra River) which is supplied to about 47 percent of the world’s population making this region as one of the major sources of water for most of the Asian countries.
Once known as the forbidden kingdom, Tibet is now one of the most interesting cultural regions of the world. With its unique Buddhist culture, snowcapped mountains, rare wildlife, deep tropical rainforests, hidden treasures and history, Tibet have been captivating the explorer’s soul and mind. It is definitely a destination for the ultimate thrill seeker.
In Tibet, religion supports the spiritual world of the people. While most of the people follow Tibetan Buddhism, there is hardly any trace of Christianity except a few numbers of Muslims. Today, we can hardly think about Tibet without Buddhism as Buddhism is the party of daily life, and merges with their lives as a whole. Similarly, Tibetan rich and colorful culture influenced by the religion has long been a dazzling pearl inviting tourists to unveil its mysteries.
The unique landscape of Tibet is yet another reason why so many people are willing to explore Tibet despite bad road conditions. Its charming lakes, deep valleys, extensive grasslands as well as desolate desert area represent the utmost of beauty that this plateau has. Apart from that, Lhasa, the capital of Tibet autonomous region is also a center of attraction. It contains two world heritage sites including the Great Potala palace and Nrobulingka along with a number of significant temples and monasteries that are beyond imagination.
Apart from the unique culture, religion, and natural beauty, Tibet is well known for its history and the relation with China. Existing as a separate nation for centuries, it once had its own currency, government, flag and constitution. However, during 1949 and 1950, this independent nation was invaded by China by over powering its small army. Since then, Tibetan people have become marginalized in their own country and have been continuously fighting for their sovereignty. Though, Tibet is totally administered under the people’s Republic of China, most importantly Tibetans have been able to keep their culture, tradition and religion intact for centuries.
