Tibetan Life At Yulong Xueshan

I’ve begun to suspect that one doesn’t get above about 3000 meters in China without finding Tibetan people. This is pretty cool since it often means you’ve got interesting cultural and religious aspects added to what’s invariably a beautiful environment to begin with. (See my photos from Labrang Monastery at Xiahe, Gansu, from last August for some other
examples.) In any case, sure enough at Yak Meadow on the slopes of Yulong Xueshan, we came across a small temple, prayer shawls and prayer flags wrapped around various items, and even a few signs of sky burials, as seen this shot.
