High atop the “Rooftop of the World” in Tibet, the beauty of Spring exists in almost the absence of oxygen. The exquisite, yet brutal snows of Winter, and home to the mythical snow lions, begin to thaw, under a sky of azure blue, devoid of almost any earthly contaminants. To view the heavens in Tibet is to feel they are almost within reach. And it is in this country of spirituality where the re-birth of Spring, indoors and outdoors takes on an energy rarely experienced on this planet. With over 6,000 monasteries as observatories to the sky above, Spring brings hope, joy and an understanding of how special this planet truly is.
