PHOTO JOURNEY: A Day in the Life of a Tibetan Person

Who are the Tibetan people?
If you take a tour through the mountainous countryside and vast plains of the Tibet Autonomous Region of China, you’ll get a glimpse much like the photos you see here. The unique cultural landscape of the Tibetan world will introduce you to hospitable nomadic herders, salty milk tea, Buddhist monasteries and so much more.
Until you can go yourself, take a look at the photos below to experience a day in the life of a Tibetan person.
