The tea road. Invitation to a timeless journey
Linking the most isolated monasteries, villages and ethnic groups, Chamagudao developed from the 10th century onwards to satisfy a historic trade exchange between the powerful Chinese empire and the Tibetan people.
The breathtaking photographs of the great master Michael Yamashita accompany the reader along the ancient tea route that once led from China to the Tibetan holy city of Lhasa.
A journey to discover Tibet, the roof of the world, a place suspended between the ancient and the modern, religion and tourism, mysticism and realism. A spiritual journey, too, to the heart of Buddhist culture and mythology that leads us through mountains and monasteries on paths traced by centuries of nomadic life, to find our Shangri-la, a paradise of peace, beauty and harmony.
