A girl's eight-year travel in Tibet

For those who haven't been to Tibet, Tibet is a dream; for those who have already been there, Tibet is a remembrance. To local Tibetans, Tibet is a way of life and to me, living there is my life-time goal."

Li Wan, a graduate from south Guangdong's Zhongshan University, was suddenly crazy about Tibet after having spent less than three months working as an office clerk.

Since 1998, Li devoted most of her time in a war that tests her life extreme. Eight years have past and her foot has covered almost every corner of Tibet.

Li's first trip to Tibet was solely prompted by her inspiration for individual freedom. She entered Tibet along the Yunnan-Tibet Highway. Although she couldn't speak a word of Tibetan language, this did not become a barrier when she communicated with local residents and appreciated them.

A prayer of the Tibetan ethnic group walks beside the prayer corridor in Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Yushu, northwest China's Qinghai Province, Oct. 2, 2012. With a history of over 300 years, the Xinzhai Mani Stone Stack is the largest Mani stone stack around the globe. Destroyed in an earthquake in 2010, the stack, together with broken scripture halls and pagodas, got repaired and are expected to be mended well before November. Mani Stones are stone plates, rocks and pebbles, inscribed with six syllabled mantra, "Om Mani Padme Hum", as a form of prayer in Tibetan Buddhism.
