If flags are your thing, then this is the place to be. Most houses
will have the big prayer flags on a pole. Strings of smaller
ones stretches across small valleys. And even the yaks seem
to congregate around them. The mornings are often calm in
the Himalayas. But by noon, the comes up in force and sweeps
mercilessly up the mountain valleys.

The stone chortens are rock structues which are built on many
of the smaller peaks, and in the main passes through the Himalayas.
The monestary in hese photos is more than 700 years old, as
are most of them in this area. So, when it was built, Christopher
Columbus was not yet born.
