The land of Tibet is one of the most remote and inhospitable places on Earth. Nestled between the towering peaks of the Himalayas and the barren starkness of the Gobi desert, it is a mysterious place whose ancient culture is still relatively unknown. In this program we explore the land and people of Tibet, its ancient customs, and its mysterious past as we journey across one of the world s most fascinating landscapes.

Episode 1: The Last Salt Caravan
The Last Salt Caravan follows the ancient trade route that connected Tibet with China. Sometimes referred to as the Southern Silk Road, this ancient trade route stretched from the province of Yunnan deep into the mountains of Tibet. For 2,000 years it was the principal route for the exchange of tea and grains, with the pink salt of the Himalayas being perhaps the most famous export. Filmed here for the first time, this ancient route offers an unprecedented look into the soul of this ancient land.

Episode 2: Guge: The Lost Kingdom of Tibet
In the barren landscape of remote western Tibet lie the ruins of the mysterious kingdom of Guge. Located on the ridge of the roof of the world, this extraordinary civilizationan amalgam of Christian and Himalayan Buddhist civilizationflourished for over 900 years, from the ninth through the seventeenth centuries, before vanishing mysteriously without a trace in 1630. Explore the recent discoveries that finally may unlock the enigma of the Kingdom of Guge, and why it disappeared almost 400 years ago.
