Hi Jake,

I love that classic shot of the Potala Palace - here's my own shot taken almost 100 years later - complete with Budweiser truck! So much change, and I hear there have been even more changes since I was there in 2000.


Best, Pete

Apparantly one of those very changes since 2000, is that the above lorry driver now wishes he didn't swerve to miss some great clot standing on the road blithely taking photo's.....heh heh.

Hi Jake,

And Heinrich Harrer also took a photo from there!



Mount Everest

Hi Jake

Thank you for posting these great photographs of Tibet, fascinating to look at.

Mount Everest The British Story


I was in the film Gyantse 1904 which was filmed at the actual sites. At the fort in Gyantse is the typical Chinese propaganda museum. There are clips of the film on youtube; I'm in the post of uploading my own copy which should be of better quality.

Nepal Expeditions

Trekking and mountaineering at Tibet surly is a life time experience. Trekking through the panoramic view of mountains, learning tradition and culture of Tibet is a life time experience. There are many things that can be learned through Tibetian culture. Everest Expedition via Tibet is also very popular worldwide.
