Despite living at a high altitude averaging 4, 000 meters and amid an extremely harsh environment of bitter cold and extreme dryness, Tibetans have managed to survive for centuries on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, known as the “Roof of the World”. More than that, they have created a brilliant culture to the world’s amazement.

How could the Tibetans have achieved so much? In particular, how could Tibetan farmers, who make up an overwhelming majority of the population, multiply in areas which are not friendly to human beings? And, in fact, how could they lead a comfortable life today? To find answers to these questions, the investigation group conducted an on-the-spot survey in Bangjor Lhunbo Village in Tsang from June to October 1995.
