Stepping on Tibetan land is dreamlike. Experiencing the country means being transported in time, space and through your senses. It is breathtaking – not only because of the altitude, but also because of its human, natural, and cultural beauty. The scent of Tibet is unique. It smells like wisdom.
Land of the Dalai Lamas and cradle of Lamaism and Buddhism, Tibet was occupied by China in 1959 and ever since its spiritual and political leader, the 14th Dalai Lama, has been exiled in Dharamshala, India. Vai Nessa will not show you this Tibet disguised as China, but the Tibet that maintains its roots, millenary wisdom, temples, and historical monasteries such as Jokhang, dating back to 647 A.D., or the unparalleled Potala Palace. This is the Tibet that exists – and resists! – in the soul of each Tibetan still living there and who maintain its traditions.
