Abstract
The most distant oriental land can greatly inspire people's feelings of longing and desire to explore. In the process of "discovering" and "understanding" East, medieval Europe give oriental a variety of exotic atmosphere featured on emphasizing the heterogeneity of oriental culture, they are an extremely important driving force in mutual understanding, communication and exchange among civilizations. Among the many exotic descriptions with oriental features, Tibet has become a very exotic oriental enclave. Magical beauty and terrible absurdity the two distinct different descriptions are the first impression of Europeans on the orient. This first impression on the East has a lasting impact. Its impact on later creation of the Tibet image for centuries cannot be underestimated.
