Tibet is known to be the ‘Shangri-La’, ‘the Rooftop of the World’ and does it not conjure up a place of exotic and mysterious charm?

However, it is also a fact that it is one of the harshest and most unfriendly places to live on Earth, the reason being it is located way up in the Himalayan mountainous ranges.

For those looking for a quick read on the history and culture of Tibet, a good summary of it can be found at the Lonely Planet website.
