Exploration 6

Tibet consists of the high mountains, lakes and rivers lying between Central, East and South Asia. Tibet also has some of the world's tallest mountains. Tibet is considered to be divided into two parts, the "lake region" in the west and north-west, and the "river region."Both regions receive limited amounts of rainfall as they lie in the shadows of the Himalaya Mountains. Tibet has a rainy season and dry season, with the rainfall being very unbalanced. In spring and winter it tends to be dry and windy. During the rainy season, which runs from June to September, the rain fall increases dramatically. The economy of Tibet is dominated by subsistence agriculture. what this means is the livestock is the primary occupation in Tibet. Tibet's main source of economic income come from there sheep, cattle, goats, camels, yaks, donkeys and horses. The main crops grown are wheat, buckwheat, rye, potatoes, oats, rapeseed, cotton and assorted fruits and vegetables.

My favorite passage came from Dali Lama's nobel piece prize speech. what he said was "Responsiblity does not only lie with the leaders of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to a particular job it lies with each one of us individually when our community is in a inner state of piece, it can that piece with neighboring communities."
the reason i choose this quote is because i agree with Dali Lama that us as people hold the crucial component to reach inner peace. another reason why i choose this passage is because Dali Lama's non violent ways and the way he proposed to settle controversial disputes.



  1. Hanad, I found this post to be interesting overall, but what first caught my attention was the picture you used, how pretty! I think of where I'm from as so boring with so much flat land and Tibet just looks beautiful.

  2. It is our responsibility as well as the leader's to take care of the communities. It is a good point and no one really thinks about it.
    Most people just leave it to the leader and complain about their decisions.

  3. The only thing bad about this blog is that the link doesn't even work.

  4. Its is really a great quote. I feel that this is the best way to spread peace in the world. The picture are really attractive. Tibet seems like very productive country, People in Tibet experiences pleasant climate.

  5. i feel their is good quote in is the blog. non-violence works better to deliver the message than violence
