Escape from Tibet

Crossing the Himalayas with refugees.

It has been 50 years since the Dalai Lama fled the Chinese occupation to find refuge in India, drawing over 80,000 Tibetans with him. The steady flow of refugees leaving Tibet has never stopped. Swiss photographer Manuel Bauer followed a father and his daughter in 1995 on their dangerous 22-day trek from Lhasa to Dharamsala in India, a story that is published in a new book, "Flucht aus dem Tibet and Exil Schweiz" (Fleeing Tibet and exile in Switzerland).
