welcome to yak country

saw so many yaks
for the first time
in my life.

also met
the pastoral nomads
who look after these yaks

inside their temporary settlement
we met Dolma who offered tea
and snacks as we opted
for just some warm water.
she said they had been there
for about two months now
and looked after 150 yaks

she also gave yak churpees
and asked us to visit again.

a little further from their place
we saw another yak herder
with his herd and
watched the yaks
cross the road.
