Schäfer was part of  three expeditions to Tibet in 1931, in 1934–1935, and in 1938–1939.

The first two expeditions were organized and led by the American Brooke Dolan II.

The third expedition was led by himself under the patronage of Heinrich Himmler , the SS .

During these expeditions he collected  3300 bird specimens (1).

 Ernst Schafer discovered an ancient Buddhist statue in Tibet in 1938 called the "Iron Man" http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-19735959.

Himmler was said to believe the Aryan race originated in Tibet and would as such have been eager to recover artefacts from the area.

Squelettes joyeux et cadavres levés, vieux grivois et vieilles femmes enceintes, bouffons à la virilité exacerbée et ascètes ridicules,
rites d’exorcisme et comiques de théâtre, cet ouvrage écrit à quatre mains accorde à ces performances masquées ou grimées l’attention
qu’elles méritent. Peut-on en effet comprendre les fêtes et les rituels de l’Himalaya en occultant les mascarades, les charivaris et
les scènes grotesques qui, si souvent, les accompagnent et leur donnent sens ?
Le rire n’a jamais fait l’objet d’aucune étude approfondie dans cette région du monde. En l’écartant, c’est tout un pan important des
traditions de la vie en Himalaya qui a été négligé.
Des hautes vallées du Ladakh situées aux confins du Tibet jusqu’aux plaines reculées de l’Assam, des villages méconnus de l’Arunachal
Pradesh aux bazars du Népal, les mascarades et leurs masques, trop souvent associés à de simples divertissements, sont des objets-frontières
qui révèlent les vertus insoupçonnées de la dérision et de l’obscénité.
