The Golden Age of Tibet (17th and 18th centuries)
The Land of the Snows, whose Dalai Lama V was the first to exercise spiritual and temporal power, has nourished the most fanciful dreams of Westerners. Its high mountains have concealed a civilization of incredible richness, which has long remained unknown.
17th and 18th century Tibet generated a wealth of intellectual and artistic activity and transformed political institutions, giving it a unique character that it retained until the Chinese invasion of 1950. It is this Tibet that this guide evokes, a Tibet that is sometimes confusing, often endearing and always exceptional.
