Author: Hugh Bollinger/Tuesday, December 26, 2017/Categories: natural history, photography, art and design

Tibet is often called the Roof of the World. The otherworldly plateau with elevations averaging 12,000 feet and upwards offers, vistas, landscapes, and mountains, seen in few other places. An image of "airglow" ripples shows just how amazing some nightime views can be.
