The Longest Journey

Jokhang Temple, Lhasa, Tibet

What is she searching for? This young Tibetan woman has walked hundreds of kilometers prostating to the ground with every new step to reach this place, the sacred Jokhang Temple, the holiest place in Lhasa. After the fall harvest, thousands of pilgrims walk from every corner of Tibet to participate in the Kora around the temple creating a scene so powerful and humbling that photographs and words cannot begin to describe it.
