Lingshed morning Puja

After several days of harsh trekking crossing the Zanskar Range in Indian Himalaya we arrived to Lingshed, an isolated village only accessible in summer season due to extreme weather condition of the area. As usual, people from village and particularly monastery monks, were extremely friendly with us to the point that monks let us spent the day with them, sharing their ceremonies, classes and meal. This picture was taken during the first ceremony of the day.
