Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tibet is a Plateau region in Central Asia and the indigenous home to the Tibetan people.
With an average elevation of 4,900 metres (16,000 ft), it is the highest region on Earth and is commonly referred to as the "Roof of the World."

Tibet is today part of the People's Republic of China (PRC) (with a small part, depending on definitions, controlled by India).
As an exclusive mandate, Tibet is also officially claimed by the Republic of China (Taiwan).
In the Tibetan sovereignty debate, the government of the People's Republic of China and the Government of Tibet in Exile disagree over when Tibet became a part of China, and whether this incorporation into China is legitimate according to international law.

King Songtsän Gampo united many parts of the region in the seventh century.
From the early 1600s the Dalai Lamas, commonly known as spiritual leaders of the region, have been heads of a centralised Tibetan administration (at least nominally), and are believed to be the emanations of Avalokitesvara ("Chenrezig" [spyan ras gzigs] in Tibetan), the bodhisattva of compassion.

Between the 17th century and 1959, the Dalai Lama and his regents were the predominant political power administering religious and administrative authority over large parts of Tibet from the traditional capital Lhasa, regarded as Tibet's holiest city.

Tibet was another beautiful country we had some trouble getting to visit.
Mind you that was before we left Auckland.

While we were in Kathmandu it was easy to arrange to go and we did not have to wait either.

We were told to stay with our guide and party at all times, while in Tibet, but we found ample free time to gallivant around and see what was seeable without any trouble.
We read and heard a lot about the altitude although it did effected us slightly, what we read about it was more scary than the reality.

I was looking forward to visit the Potala, and I was terrified the day before, because I smoke, my age, the altitude and the height of the Potala, but mainly because of the warnings.

You will never guess, the next morning the bus taken us nearly to the top of it, from behind.

Amazing place, amazing sights.

We really enjoyed ourselves.


An unforgettable experience.

We've have had a terrific time!!
