Photographer's Note

Typical landscape at the side of the roads in Tibet:

Prayers flags
The imposing Himalaya mountains as background
House (or same kind of) of people living alongside the road, they earn their living by selling crafts at the tourists

Altitude: More than 5000 meters or 16404.199 feet

About prayer flags
The 5 colors of prayer flags represent the 5 basic elements: yellow-earth, green–water, red-fire, white-air, blue-space.
Balancing these elements externally brings harmony to the environment.
Balancing the elements internally brings health to the body and the mind.
