Story: A journey through Tibet gives you a strong sense of the unattainable, not only for the challenging altitudes its land reaches, but also the boundaries raised continually under the Chinese occupation. What also feels unattainable is the Tibetan culture, buried under the vast activities of Western and Chinese tourism and disfigured by Chinese modernisation. Monks still living in the precious heritage of buddhist monasteries are becoming temporary ticket sellers while listening to Buddhist prayers on their iPhones, and it seems that what Tibet is today will not be what it is tomorrow.
