Tibet is known as the ‘roof of the world’. Five mountains exceed altitudes of 8,000 metres, including Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak. Lhasa is the political, economic, cultural and religious centre with an abundance of cultural relics. Tibet accommodates 1,700 monasteries,
some of which date back to the 8th century.

The approximately 5.5 million Tibetans are an ethnic group with bold and uninhibited characteristics. Legend has it that the ancestors of the Tibetan people are a monkey and a female ogre. However, archaeological and geological discoveries indicate that the Tibetans are descendants
of aboriginal and nomadic Qiang tribes.

The history of Tibet began around 4,000 years ago.
