Tibet | Traveling

I kept telling my son Colin, this was “an adventure and not a vacation”.  It definitely lived up to it’s billing.  Traveling to Tibet requires a connection to a tour company, so we were required to book all of our hotels and transportation through them.  The Chinese government requires all foreigners to obtain a separate Tibet entry visa after the problems in 1998.

We stayed in modest Tibetan hotels (US$39 per night) and a Yak hair tent for the night at Mt. Everest.  They all worked out great – except for the lack of hot water a couple mornings and the sketchy bathroom facilities at Everest base camp.  I never visited it, but Colin’s negative review was enough for me to find enlightenment with nature.

During the 1 week trip Colin and I shot a total of 3,113 photos.  A very easy task in Tibet.
