Deep in the Himalayan mountains in the Dolpo region of Nepal, the stone village of Tsharka perches above river banks, surrounded by fields of barley.




The people of Dolpo – Dolpo pa -- are Tibetan in culture, language and religion, though they are divided from Tibet by national political boundaries.




To reach Tsharka, one treks through wide valleys, over high mountain passes and across steep gorges and ravines.






Chortens, religious shrines, stand as sentinels along the path that lead from one valley to the next, witnesses to the spirituality and fragility of life in Dolpo.
