... capital city of Tibet during its years of independence, on 26 January 2014. I was quite taken aback by the barren and dry landscape that greeted us on arrival. Bare, brown rocky mountains with not a green tree in sight. I suppose, being winter and 3 600 m above sea level the cold dry landscape should not have come as too much of a surprise.

Lhasa is nestled like an oasis in between these brown mountains and nothingness. The city, which I imagine before the ...

Our week-long tour of one of the world's most famous and hard to reach destinations started with a 44 hour train ride from Chengdu. The railline itself costs billions and reaches heights of over 5000 metres (above sea-level, not the ground, that would just be scary). Oxygen is pumped into counter the thinning of the air and some of the tracks at the highest points have cooling pipes underneath to make sure they don't sink during the brief ...
