Adventures in Asia

Namtso Nunnery

During one of the days we were on the trek we went to Namtso lake.

P1080528

One side of the lake has two huge hills that provide two different koras (pilgrimage trails). We did the smaller kora because it was raining and there happened to be a very basic nunnery along the path. We were allowed to explore the nunnery but couldnt find out much other information.

Check out how basic this place is–

Here is the entrance

Here is their make-shift prayer wheel which is made out of fabric and no wood.
P1080521

Here are two pictures of the alter room.

P1080524

There was one other room which was a sleeping chamber that also had a small alter. I was pretty amazed at how basic it all was.
