Going up to Triund Viewpoint

Gradually climbing up in the clouds, until we got to the top for the final
breath taking view!

Food outlets

We had lunch in the first one, the Sri Nivassa of the North, (1 &2) - and
delicious it was too!- apple juice in the middle one, and supper and breakfast
in the bottom one.
It looks like the monsoon is starting a little early, no walking up mountain
tops - cafe life is beginning in earnest.

It was really difficult to take, all objects are in glass cases.
A minature painting and an embroidered shawl.

Tibetan arts

(viewed 1316 times)
We've had a feast of Tibetan arts and crafts. All monasteries are beautifully
painted, and we also went to the Norbulingka Institute, where such arts are
taught and promoted.

Here, a tanka in progress outside the library door, and details of the doorway
and porch. Tibetan library, McCleodganj. And a woodcarving in progress.
