There are only a few areas inhabited in Tibet from the 1.2 square kilometers. But there is live even in the most extreme areas. We could see several wild animals on our journey. We saw the Tibet Donkey (Kiang/Jiang, wild donkey and the tallest wild horse in the world), the Tibet Antelope, the Tibet Gazelle, the Thrilling Rabbit, Groundhogs and a lot of birds. We didn’t saw for a long time a single tree when we watched out of the window but several small plants and bushes were adapted to the extreme conditions. So there was vegetation even in the highest altitude. After Lhasa we went down to lower altitudes which had sometimes a subtropical character. From this region comes the wood which can be found in many temples of the country.
