Hello again! It’s been a while… After traveling for almost 20000km I am now back in Dubai and I am looking ahead at the daunting task of processing the hundreds of photographs I took while in Nepal, Tibet, China and Russia. All the places have been amazing, but probably the highlights for me were the Tibetan Plateau and Olkhon Island on Lake Baikal in Siberia. When you’re going on a long trip like this it gets very difficult after a while to choose your favourite places and I had quite a lot of trouble choosing the picture for this blog post.
I decided to first show you a photograph of Yamdrok Lake, one of the three largest holy lakes in Tibet. The lake is about 4 hours from Lhasa at an altitude of 4500m and it’s surrounded in the distance by snow-capped mountains over 7000m high. The sky was an incredible deep blue and the clouds just seemed to float right above us. Yamdrok Lake (and many otherÂ lakes on the Tibetan Plateau)Â is consideredÂ the residing place for protective deities so pilgrims make their way here every year.
