Tibet Sun is an English-language news website focusing on Tibet and the Tibetan people, world news, opinions, essays, and photography from other media.[1] It was founded and produced by Lobsang Wangyal in 2008,[2] and is based in Dharamshala, India.[3] Lobsang conceived the idea of Tibet Sun in 1999, but got the domain in 2004 after chasing the parked domain for two years.[2] The site was launched on 8.8.8 – the opening of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.[4]

Lobsang specialises in Media, Art and Entertainment and hence Tibet Sun is his media production as a photojournalist. Lobsang is the director of the Miss Tibet Pageant, Tibetan Music Awards and Free Spirit Film Festival. He produced the Tibetan Olympics 2008 in Dharamshala.[5]
