This old monk at the Minya Konka Gompa (Gongga Shan) was my host back in 1994. There was nobody else at the monastery at that time, he seemed to be the sole occupant. Creepy place.
Kham then and now. A photoblog showing how eastern Tibet looked in the 1920s and how the same places and people look now. Based on the explorations of botanist Joseph Rock.
