For centuries, Tibet has fascinated mankind.
This land beyond the mighty Himalayas on the highest plateau of
the world hardly accessible to the outside world has always been
a challenge to all mortal beings. This “Land of mysteries
“, a “Forbidden Land”, forbidden not only by
man but also by nature appeals to so many explorers, scholars,
pilgrims and adventures in the past, hoping to find probably a
real “ Shangri-La”. In the past, Lhasa, the capital
and center of Tibetan culture, religion and Lama theology, was
so far from anywhere and the journey to it so arduous, from any
direction, that only the hardest souls, impelled by the strongest
motive or curiosity, penetrated to the holy city. Now, fortunately
there is an opportunity to visit Tibet.
