Uzun yıllar önce,daha genç bir #lama iken #Tibet 'in başkenti #Lhasa 'da bilmediği devlet sırlarını açıklaması için vahşice gözleri oyulmuştu. İşkence edilmiş,sakatlanmış,kör edilmiş,acıları dayanılmaz hale getirilmiş bir külçe olarak şehirin dışına atılmıştı. Dayanılmaz acılar ile içinde kalan son yaşama ışığı ile kayalardan sızan bir yudum suyu bulabilmek umudu ile tırmanıyordu. Zamanla en berbat yaralar kapanmaya ve oyuk göz çukurlarındaki sıvılar kurumaya yüz tuttu. Ama daima yukarılara doğru tırmanmaya devam etti. Hava gittikçe seyrekleşiyordu. Yiyebilecek ve tutunabilecek otlar azalmıştı. #KitapHakkında : Ben bu kitabın yazarı...bildiririm ki, bu kitap kesinlikle doğrudur. Maddeciliğe gömülmüş kişiler hayal ürünü olduğunu düşünebilirler. İnanmak ya da inanmamak kişinin gelişimine bağlı. Ama kitabım gerçektir. #Hermit#DünyanınEvrenselSahipleri#oku#LobsangRampa#RM#kitapkeyfim#okuyankazanır#turkey 🇹🇷 #izmit#sahaf
After 21 hours on the train linking Xining in China and Lhasa, Tibet's Capital. The first thing you see arriving Lhasa is not the famous Potala rising from the mist on a mountain but rather big boulevards covered by Chinese flags, industries, landfills, suburban buildings. The dreadful sense of arriving somewhere that does not look like what Tibet should look like.

The salt 🧂 terraces of Tsakalho in Markham, Tibet along the Ancient Tea Horse Road. Photo 📷 taken by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto (National Geographic) on our Tea Horse Road: Yunnan to Tibet Photography Expedition.
During ancient times, salt selling was the primary source of income for local villagers here. These terraces are the only surviving artificial salt mining landscape in the area and the unique salt making methods are still being used today. Every morning, the local villagers arrive with buckets on their back and after filling them with brine, they climb to the mountain and pour it into the salt pans. It is then let to dry for seven to eight days and once evaporated salt can then be extracted and collected.
The white salt that comes from these terraces is of the highest quality and is used as a cooking ingredient, while the deep red salt produced in the same way is used to boil tea or feed livestock. In the past, local residents would take the salt to cities in Yunnan and Sichuan and barter it for production tools and daily necessities.
Michael along with twelve other photographers are travelling the ancient trading route where Chinese tea was exchanged for Tibetan horses over a thousand years ago. Journeying from Shangri-La to Lhasa, Michael last stepped foot on this route 10 years ago on an assignment for the National Geographic story “The Forgotten Road”. No longer forgotten, the road has been paved and now serves as the main highway to the holy land of Lhasa.
Photo by @andrea_frazzetta | Among the central streets of the Tibetan capital of Lhasa, colors and lights come alive. I was roaming the city on a tuk-tuk, wrapped in plastic to protect me from the rain, when I noticed this little side street. I couldn’t resist; I jumped out and ran into the street. Tibet's holy city is changing fast. Once an ancient hub for Buddhism, Lhasa has recently seen increasing modern development leading to a growing connection to the outside world.

This angle of Lhasa required walking through a super bizarre, defunct amusement park. There were a lot of statues of pink monkeys for some reason? (Thanks to @jack.2c for the intel).
