  1. Hi Caroline, You are the only person who has commented on the image. I love the photo.They are boxes of old documents in the Khumjung Monastery. From memory all the monasteries had a similar wall of the boxes.I should research this. I have plans for a post on the religious elements along the track. The monasteries were so simple but rich in colour on the inside. Another one to get a crack on with….

  2. I love the photo too and I’m glad to know a bit more about it, thanks! At first I thought it might have something to do with death (little niches of ashes or personal articles) but didn’t want to display my ignorance. Interesting stuff. I look forward to reading more when you get the chance (always another thing to write about and never enough time…I know!)


  3. Weeelll, you’ve probably caught me out a bit there Ali. We had yak’s cheese. |The yak bells were lovely.There were also the girls carrying yak dung and beautiful yak pastures. I really need to get onto the yak post, it’s in draft…Thanks for the comment and visit. Louise
