Tibet and Mount Everest are not only tourists’ dreams but also the holy land to the Tibetans. The first guy cycles from Nanchang by himself; the second person has spent nine years hiking through the five longest national highways (The red banner he is carrying reads “Walking through China”); The other two photos show the three brothers who made pilgrimages from Kangding and have been walking for six months.

Qiongda lives around the Yang Lake. I lived in her home because there is no hotel. At night, I drink alcohol and Tibetan butter tea while listening to their singing and old legends.
