Also known as the ‘roof of the world’, Tibet is the highest place on earth with average altitude of 4000m. It is part of Southwestern China and its south border is lined by the world’s tallest mountains, including Chomolungma or Mt. Everest. Tibet is extremely rich in history and culture and is predominantly a Buddhist country along with Bon (pre-Buddhist) tradition.

Tibet is inhabited by many ethnic groups such as Monpas, Qiang, Tamak, Lhobas, Hui and Han people. Many of these people are either farmers or nomads who make a subsistence living by rearing yaks or growing cereals. Tibet has long been a center and stronghold for Tibetan Buddhism.
