Today we will climb up the steep mountains around our place of abode in the center of Tibet Gharze province.


We enjoy a typical Tibetan style breakfast. 

Chambar, salted tea and yak butter with grated yak cheese

Chambar, salted tea and yak butter, yak cheese, mixed in a cup with bare hands. We can’t find any tiktok coffee here.

Long before the sun rises we woke up. 


Behind the mountains it begins to dawn, we are engulfed by the beauty of the morning.

The night had been noisy, with Tibetan rodents rummaging overhead. 

The cabin had a double wooden ceiling, this is where the rodent built their nests. 


Prayer flags at auspicious locations

Thus sleeping at night was difficult. 

Where we sleep, kitchen, hall, and bedroom in one, the typical Tibetan house.

Throughout the night I held a flashlight. I could not spot the noisy little rodents who were after the Chambar.


The hospitality of Tibetan people has no equal.

They honor us as their guests in their house, and we dare not to refuse their persuasive welcome.


Tibetan furniture hand-painted

Our room has red, hand-painted Tibetan furniture everywhere.

The rooms are decorated with sturdy, hand-painted wooden furniture. 

An open kitchen furnace is in the room where we sit on our bed.


Lapsang Tibetan salted tea

We drink salted Lapsang, and we plan for the climb.


Ascent to the high mountains


We begin to climb the mountains where we will stay overnight.

In this mountain wilderness wolves and bears still roam free. 


Horses are sent to carry us up the mountain

As a result, most Tibetans – male and female – carry a dagger, rich decorated with silver and gemstones.

I reflect on my earlier days in Austria.


Beautiful mountain scenery all around

With every step I climb these trails comes a vision as clear as the Tibetan springs gushing out here and there.


We zigzag along the rocky paths, it takes all my strength for its steepness. 

The higher we reach the more spectacular the views, the more you feel free.

Only a mountaineer can understand this feeling. 


All mountains

The only other place I felt a similar sensation was during a night I found myself in Beyla, Guinea.


The serpentine paths become more steep, walking close near to cliffs

Edelweiss grows here

Horses know the steep and risky trails

I realize I made a good choice not to move on horseback.

Not being a good rider it would have been too risky.

Well into the afternoon, long overdue we reach the first house on a long stretch of green, rye growing area. 


Rye grows up on the mountain slopes

Exhausting climb up the mountains


We set off at 2000 meters, the ascent was exhausting. 

It takes full 8 hours to reach the feet of the summit.

Here in the mountains everyone knows each other.

They knew about our arrival by a messenger who comes here each day.

A simple abode

The owners invite us into the first dwelling we see.

We sit in the dark kitchen with only basic amenities.

The lady of the house and her grandson invites me with the same hospitality I am so used to since coming to these parts. 

All I take is some fresh mountain spring water, trying hard to recover from the first part of climbing.
