Tibet: the Mysterious Land

Tibet, one of the many “controversial” issues of China, is a mysterious land to most people on this planet. In this post, let us put aside the complicated “controversial” and let me introduce you the stunning images of Jan Reurink to unveil the “mysteriousness” of Tibet.

Tibetan Plateau, “Roof of the World” “the Third Pole”, is one of the most remote regions in the world. Given its extreme altitude (4,000-5000 meters or above), not every tourist is physically suitable to go traveling in Tibet. For the same reason, not many good photographers have fully presented its beauty to the world. This also adds to its “mysteriousness”.

Unveil “mysteriousness” with Reurinkjan’s images

An enthusiastic traveler from the Netherlands, also a great sharing photographer on Flickr, Jan Reurink, has traveled in Tibet extensively (for at least three times, I guess) and brought us a great collection of eye-catching images of the Mysterious Tibet:

Tibet 2002 Set | Tibet 2007 Set | Tibet 2008 Riding the Windhorse Set

Lots of these images are shared with a Creative Commons license. Thank you, Jan!

Best view on Flickriver

Besides the three Tibet photo sets listed above, I strongly recommend you to enjoy all 1,616 (as of 07/31/2009) Jan’s exceptional “Tibet” tagged images organized on reurinkjan's Photos Tagged with tibet on Flickriver.

Why flickriver not flickr.com? On Flickriver, photos are presented all on one page with larger size and a black background. You will never need to hit next and navigate. And most importantly, the images are automatically sorted by “Most Interesting” which is not available for some conditions on Flickr.

Honestly, at the very moment I found these images, I cannot help tweeting to share it with everyone and of course writing a post here to all Chinablog.cc readers.

BTW, Jan also has selected his own “Favorites” set photos, most of which are Tibet photos, although you might also find some other places on his global trips.

I hope you like these images, too. Have you found any other good images/photographers about Tibet? Why not share with us here!

    I would love to travel to Tibet, and other remote Chinese regions. Unfortunately, the political problems made it a bit challenging. But I’m still hoping to go sometimes!
