Tibet

 

Tibet, locked in his strength over the Himalayas, is known as Shangri-La, Land of Snows or the Roof of the World. Tibet is mysterious like few places in the world, despite China's occupation of 1.950. Since then life for Tibetans has not been easy, not only by weather but by the deliberate cultural repression that has been submitted, which is the worst calamity that has ever endured. Tibet has always exercised an extraordinary fascination in the Western world's imagination, is like a siren song that calls us in any way to know this magical place, despite losing part of their identity.
