Refereed as Shangri La, The forbidden Land, The Roof of the World, and by many more, the mysterious Buddhist Kingdom remained long closed to foreigners, exerting a strong hold on the imagination of the world. For centuries, it has fascinated mankind. It was hardly accessible to the outside world and has been always a challenge to human beings. Tibet, a “forbidden land” not only by man but also by nature, attracted many explorers, scholars, and pilgrims and adventure lovers, all in pursuit of “Real Shangri La”.
