Tibet – Memento Paradiso

Tibet is the closest thing to the fabled Shangri-La on earth.

It is a fantasy land far beyond the hills and the Himalayas, intertwined with treacherous roads and sparkling rivers, and painted with picturesque meadows and mountains. 

Mountains on the Nepal side

Far across some of the most awe-inspiring high passes in the world (some above 5000 meters).

And with landscapes beyond imagination. 

Landscape of Tibet

Experiencing the landscape of Tibet had always been on my bucket-list, and I finally got the opportunity during my travel to Lake Mansarovar and Mount Kailash in Tibet. 

As Tibet is a huge region (with its area more than 8 times that of Nepal), there is so much to see and explore still, like the holy city of Lhasa itself that I hope to travel to one day. 

Since I was able to capture some of my memories in pictures, I am calling my collection “Memento Paradiso“.
