Travelling across Tibet is enlightening, here are some shots to inspire you!

Lhasa is much more than the Potala but it is iconic, and stupendous.
A Potala sunrise from the hotel Himalaya - Jamie
I love stitching panoramas; the circles are fountains - Jamie
Again, Shigatse is more than the Tashi Lumpo Monastery and seat of the Panchen Lama, but it is photogenic!
Offerings made from butter and tsampa (cooked barley flour) - Jamie
The rich colours - Jamie
Inside is the 10th Panchen Lama's stupa (memorial), but as with most gompas
I love having a rest day at Sheger, as we do with most expeditions, and this
gives us a chance to visit the spectacular fort.
There is a monastery to the right, and above is the ruins of the fort - Jamie
These are the autumn colours, in spring it is more drab - Jamie
And from the top... - Jamie
One of my favourite portraits taken while our drivers stopped for a cigarette break too - Jamie
