Roni (Lawaling) aunt and uncle

Roni (Lawaling) aunt and uncle, originally uploaded by mutikonka1.

This couple are the aunt and uncle of my companion, guide and sponsor, Zago Tsering, who took me to Mt Maidi Gonga. He is the head of education in Jiulong country, and he himself is Pumi nationality. His ancestral village is Sanyanlong, which we passed through on the way to the mountain. For this reason, he was related to or knew most of the people we met in the villages on the way.This is his uncle's village, which is perched high on a ridge above the Yangwe Kong valley.
