There is a jump of about 50 km to shallower depth from Indian LAB to the Asian LAB at the northern edge of Tibet along the west line. Robust economic growth, rapid advances in technology and increasing interconnectivity make Asia an important market for U. The main advantages of this way is that it passes by Mount Kailash and through a beautiful, very remote region inhabited by nomads. Both central government and local officials often insist that dialog with the Dalai Lama is essentially impossible and claim that his actions belie his repeated public assurances that he does not advocate independence for Tibet.

Among statements published at that time we find things like this: In 1938 Schäfer left for Tibet with 30 men and a large cache of weapons, arriving in Lhasa in early 1939. […] The SS storm troops were on a mission to persuade the Tibetan army, by giving them gifts, to wean it away from British influence … The plan was … that it was the Tibetans who would teach the Germans how to survive in the harsh environment. ¹¹⁸ And even more of a falsification: Himmler believed that the Tibetans were fellow Aryans.

The Tibet Museum will maintain and operate its Dharamsala-based museum, “Demton Khang,” display a touring exhibition, organize seminars and lectures, and maintain a website.
