Canyons of Guge Kingdom - Lhasa, Tibet
Thanks Kim Bannister for this favorite place.
After driving across the vast Tibetan plateau, I think one of the more amazing experiences in Tibet is to climb to the top of the high pass past Kailash and drop into the deep canyons of the Guge Kingdom, completely unexpected, very dramatic, eroded and ochre-colored cliffs spreading as far as the eye can see. And then dropping down to 3500 meters, in Tibet!
