The Kőrösi Csoma Sándor Award is the most prestigious recognition in the Hungarian tourism industry. It is named after Kőrösi Csoma Sándor, a Hungarian-Szekler linguist, librarian, founder of Tibetan studies, and creator of the Tibetan-English dictionary. In search of the Hungarian homeland, he traveled throughout Eurasia. As the discoverer of the Hungarian homeland, he could not enter the history of science; he is mentioned there as a discoverer of an unknown culture and the founder of a new branch of science, Tibetan studies. He finally gained recognition for himself and perhaps a little for the entire Hungarian nation through his work. For his honor, in 2021, the concept of the award was a walking stick carved into a frozen (actually amber) block.
