Faces of Tibet

By Kuang Linhua | China Daily | Updated: 2013-09-22 09:34

There are more than 10 ethnic groups living in the Tibet autonomous region. Ethnic groups living on the plateau not only keep traditions from generations past, but also face the modern way of life full of hope. China Daily photographer Kuang Linhua has captured these images of the remarkable lifestyles in the region.

She is one of just two such practitioners in the region as modern medicine has became more popular.
