The ancient Guge Kingdom

The ruins of Guge Kingdom, the Old Summer Palace of Tibet is located in the Ngari Region of Tibet. Established in about the 10th century it was ruled by about 16 kings with armies of tens of thousand of soldiers till the 17th century when it ended due to conflicts resulting from power disputes within the imperial family. This barren landscape seems just like it was hundreds of years ago except there is a new-tarred highway but don’t expect much as conditions is pretty basic in this remote area. And travelling in this high altitude will definitely take your breath away.
