Best Places to Visit in Tibet
The Roof of the World, Asia’s Water Tower, and the planet’s Third Pole, feeding almost all of India and China’s rivers that stream thousands of miles to their respective seas, feeding, nurturing and providing livelihood to millions, that is just one of the humbling attributes of this paradise in the skies. Just to be in Tibet and breathe that rarefied air of gentlest of gentle Buddhism will rejuvenate you. Visit the tear-inducingly beautiful Lake Mansarovar, with all its myth and mystery (and also the world’s highest fresh water body) and Mount Kailash, solitary, majestic, home of the mighty Shiva, and you will understand why they are South Asia’s holiest sites, for Hindu and Buddhist alike. All the delicate beauty and elegiac frailty of an endangered country are represented here, and everyone human on the planet must, at some point, see it before it goes away. Line up.
