Zanskar-Ladakh travelogue, 2000

Lamayuru

 A proud young horseman and his two horses. On the way up to Sengge La, approx. 5000m high.

 


View from Prinkte La, ca. 3700m, just before Lamayuru.

 The fields below Lamayuru Gompa, which can be seen on the crest, to the left.


It's not easy to keep your hand still for 20 seconds while attempting to
take pictures in almost total darkness without a flash. A shaky experience!

Dancing skeletons. Yes, there is really no need to feel embarrassed. Everyone can dance if they only try!
