Go on a journey to Tibet. With images from early 2011 and Tibetan music, you'll get to experience the people, environment, religion and life of Tibet.
Maker Erik Törner is a Tibet analyst from IM, Individuell Människohjälp (manniskohjalp.se) who last visited Tibet in January 2011.
”It was a cold time, hardly no tourists visit Tibet in winter time. On the other hand, as it is too cold to work for both farmers and nomads, they traditionally have a month of and go on pilgrimage. Thereby, all sights where filled with Tibetans, mostly from the countryside.
Dressed up for the occasion, and very curious to meet Westerners, they made it worth sleeping without heat or electricity in below zero temperatures.”
