gompas

Monks in a ceremonial procession at the Gompa in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh.

Gompa= monastery. This picture is from my north east hitchhiking, extreme budget trip last year. We arrived in Tawang just after Buddha Purnima and were bummed that we missed all the traditional festivities, plus our budget had been smashed because of expensive transport. But we got to the Gompa on a misty morning and this procession of the monks made our day. Watch out for more pictures from that trip!
