Tibet is a rich and beautiful land located at the main part of Qinghai-Tibet plateau, southwest frontier of China. Tibet is so sunny that it produces a year-round sunshine of over 3,000 hours in a year. Its old name, ‘land of snow’  the name by which Tibet is almost popularly known is always thickly covered with snow with hardly any signs of inhabitation in many places.

Tibet is cold in winter, cool in summer and generally dry, receiving only 450 millimeters (18 inch) of rain or snow. Sunlight is extremely intense. The thin air neither blocks nor holds heat, so sunshine feels warm, shadows are chilly, and temperature can vary greatly within a day.

Religion and spirituality have a deep influence on all aspects of life in Tibet. Monasteries and nunneries scattered across  play an important role in their communities. Monks and nuns of Tibet are often very active in promoting Tibet’s culture, language and environment.

The basic understanding of Buddhism is essential in Tibet. Buddhism’s values and goals permeate in almost everything in Tibet. Many Buddhists learn sutra, meditate, and discipline themselves to make their ethics higher. The Temple in Tibet is open to everyone; they accept all people without any distinction. With Buddhism as an essential aspect, it permeates things like culture, literature and art.

With an average elevation of over 4,000 m, Tibet is considered to be the highest region in the world and is often called the ‘Roof of the World’. This comes as no surprise, especially since southern Tibet is located in the Himalayas, which contains many of the world’s highest summits. In addition to its incredible heights, Tibet is also one of the most isolated areas on earth; with most of the people living in elevations ranging from 1200 m to 5100 m.
