Location : Lamayuru, Ladakh.
According to the local legends, present day Lamayuru valley was once a lake, which was magically dried up by renowned Buddhist yogi Mahasiddha Naropa.
Before us, three local, traditionally dressed women, with spinning, prayer wheels in hand, did the same. A rough cut sheep skin with long, white fur, hanging off their shoulders caught our eye. They smiled at us warmly and even agreed to let us take their pictures!
