Welcome to a new member of the Tibet Eco Travel Collective 2015December 2, 2015.
Welcome to Lobsang from Tibet Experience as a new member of the collective!
Lobsang: “When I was young there was no plastic in the area where I grew up. I did not even have shoes, just boots made of yak skin in winter. So when plastic packaging and goods came I had no idea about the effect on nature and I would just throw everything on the ground or in the river. When I became a guide it were the Western tourists who taught me that it is bad for nature to just throw rubbish away. Now my pockets are always full of packaging waiting to be thrown in the bin from things I ate or used or what I found in nature.”
Favorite Valley: The Drigung Valley
Drigung is a beautiful alpine valley with small quaint villages, farmland and grasslands. Overlooking the valley is the majestic Drigung Til Monastery – home to one of the most famous sky burial sites in Tibet and home of the famous Drigung Kagyu Buddhist sect.more
