Chamdu 11, Tso Morari, Ladakh by Phil Borges

Chamdu 11, Tso Morari, Ladakh

Chamdu very hesitantly asked me if I had taken a photo of the Dalai Lama that she could have. She is the eldest of four children living in a yak hair tent with her family in this very remote and rugged area of the Changtang (Tibetan Plateau). Since there are no trees or bushes at this 16,500 ft altitude the only fuel they have is goat dung to get them through the long and bitter cold winter.
