Mystical and Fascinating Tibet

Tibet is one of my dream destinations.  The majestic scenes of the Tibetan plateaus and the towering Potala monastery on arrival to the city of Lhasa are some of the landmarks of Tibet.
We arrived from Kumming to Lhasa, the largest of Tibet’s city to acclimatize ourselves for a night before going further by a mini bus led by team leader, Dr. Marcellian from Miri, together with an award landscape photographer from China, photographers from Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, a tourist guide and a police (required by the Chinese government going on a bus in Tibet) to the base camp of Mt. Everest from Tibetan side near the border of Nepal. 

Here I can only show a few photos and scenes of Tibet. To actually experience the trill and beauty, one need to go there to see and feel it. But be warn that one also need to be fit enough to overcome the sometime extreme weather and thin air!

The Beauty of Love - Tibetan's Kids, Lhasa, Tibet.

If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. - 1 Corinthians 13 NIV.
