It is said by many that the unusual character of Tibet that makes it distinguish from many other breathtaking places lies in its strong religious ambience.

Wherever you go in Tibet, you can always feel the power of belief, which is the reason why many pilgrims walk a long way to worship holy mountains and lakes, conduct routine sutra chanting rituals, and look so tender, calm and pure with hope, tolerance and fortitude.
