Mountains, monasteries and ...the tibetan people

In 1991 I visited Tibet as part of a trip to Mongolia and Tibet with Tibetan Buddhism as ''red thread''. After visiting the Tibetan monasteries in Erdene Zuu in Mongolia and Labrang in the Gansu Province, Tibet itself was the highlight of our trip. Till now Tibet is still the most fascinating country I ever visited by its overwhelming culture, ceremonies and monasteries in the breathtaking landscape of the Himalayas.

At the Drepungmonastery near Lhasa we whitnessed an very impressive ceremony.

Except Lhasa we visited Gyantse and Xigaze. En route we met a lot of friendly Tibetan people.

    I love your 'wild-east' picture. I am going to Tibet May this year and I wish I would be able to see the street as it is in your picture. Thanks.
