ABSTRACT
The article presents a narrative of how the author has managed to locate Tuva, a 65,830-square-mile Shangri-la ringed by mountains in the midpoint of Asia. Famed physicist Richard P. Feynman failed to locate the hidden place. Which was an extra reason for the author to go where Feynman could not. No American is believed to have made it to Tuva until the 1980s, and since then only 200 or so have. According to the author, Tuva is beautiful, a spiritual place full of gentle people with striking features.
