Tibet, the roof of the world, is a land steeped in mystery, spirituality and resilience. Wrestling with China and with the exile of the spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, Tibetan culture and heritage was momentarily suspended through time as the Chinese dismantled the country all in the name of revolution. Now, however, the Tibetan people are bouncing back, monasteries have been restored and prayer flags once again flutter in the high passes, an ingrained faith and devotion winning through.
