Tibet: is no paradise, is also the nearest place from paradise

Tibet: is no paradise, is also the nearest place from paradise

If you ask me which is the most beautiful place in China, maybe I can’t really answer that at the moment, China is a vast country, covering an area of 9. 6 million square kilometers, there are so many beautiful sceneries. But, if you ask me where I want to travel most again, I’ll tell you soon enough, Tibet.


After more than 20 days of driving through Tibet, more than 5-thousand-kilometer journey, we visited many places the general public visit rarely, passed through no man’s lands, ate dried food, bunked on ground floor, fixed the car which was out of order, though our journey is hard and steep, but we still had fun.


If I am to recommend a tour route in Tibet, that, of course, is our travel photography route, This classic self-drive photography journey is the fruit of a wellknown photographer’s many years of photographic exploration. We rented a car and set out from Lhasa, and finally got back to Lhasa, If the journey is too long for you, you may cut your journey short.
