Pasture

This is the winter home of a Tibetan Nomad. They keep sheeps and Yak. During summer you can meet them at the upper reaches of Himalaya ( Places like Bum-La) and in winter they came down to Tawang Vally with their Sheeps and Yaks. They sell Tsurpi ( made from Yak milk), Yak hair, wool, Rock Salt, Khori Matti.

 

"Snow falls silently, rests on  the Yaks wool.

 

No other sound but the chime of the bell,

 

As the Yak grazes on the Pasture." - Monsoon Lover Sudip
