Gyantse Drive In / Fly Out
For centuries, Tibet has fascinated mankind. This land beyond the mighty Himalayas on the highest plateau of the world, was hardly accessible to the outside world and has always been a challenge to all mortal beings.
This “land of mysteries”, a “forbidden land”, forbidden not only by man but also by nature, appeals to so many explorers, scholars, pilgrims and adventurers in the past, hoping to find probably a real “SHANGRI-LA”. In the past, Lhasa, the capital and centre of Tibetan culture, religion and Lama theology, was so far from anywhere and the journey to it so arduous from any direction, that only the hardiest souls, impelled by the strongest motive or curiosity, penetrated this holy city.
