Tibet is an autonomous region in China famous for its mountainous ranges. We had just arrived in China and we were traveling from one city to another enjoying the changing lifestyle of the country. China is one of the oldest civilizations in the world and since the age of industrialization, it has become a major power. We were traveling in a group (not traveling with pets) and whenever we visited a country, we were interested in exploring the natural habitat and the phenomena of nature. We decided to visit the Tibetan region of the country, as it is a wonder of nature. There are towering and mountain ranges whose peeks reach the heights of the sky. The region is known as the “Roof of the World” owing to the presence of the mountain range.
Exploring the beauty of Tibet and its Mountain Ranges
Tibet is on the Northern side of the Himalayas, which contains the highest mountain peaks in the world. The mountain range of Tibet also contains the Mount Everest peak, which is the highest mountain peak in the world. We reached here in the month of October, which is considered the best time of the year to visit. The weather during this time is pleasant and the mountaintops are not entirely covered in snow. We spent a few days here enjoying the beauty and scenery of this region. We also visited the winter home of Dalai Lama here who is a revered figure in the Buddhist traditions.
Visiting the Lakes, Caves, Meditation Places, Temples and the Grand Canyon
The air of this place has a mystifying effect on the travelers as wherever we went; we came across a strong foundation of the Buddhist traditions. There are centuries old temples here, which are a symbol of compassion, peace, and love for travelers. There are many caves in the area where the followers of the Buddhist traditions can sit and meditate for finding their true inner peace. We spent some time in these caves and tried to relish the mystifying effect meditation has on a person.
Then we went to visit the Yarlung Tsangpo Valley in the largest city in the Tibetan region, which is famous for the Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon. This Grand Canyon is the largest Canyon in the world spanning over more than 540 KM2. This place gives historical accounts of the Yarlung Dynasty in this region. We spent a week here exploring the ins and outs of this place before continuing our travel to other cities in the region.
