When the door to Tibet was finally open in the mid-1980, Tibet was in ruins. The Chinese liberated the Tibetans of their independence between 1950 and 1970. They drove away their spiritual leader and some of the Tibet’s finest into exile. They destroyed most of the Tibetan cultural and historical heritage.
Now Tibet Travel has become one of the mysteries for the westerners. Tibet is now one of the popular Himalayan destinations for travelers. A walk around Lhasa’s (Tibet capital) lively Barkhor pilgrimage circuit if proof enough that the vain effort of Chinese communist to create a Brave New World have stumbled on the remarkable and inspiring faith of Tibetan people.
