Tibet- Ganden Monastery

One of the amazing Monasteries outside of Lhasa. The kora (path around a temple, or monastery which the pilgrims ritually walk) takes you around the back side of the mountain that the monastery is perched on for some amazing views. You also pass the sky burial sites where the dead are cut into pieces and spread out for the vultures to eat. In the last 2 pictures when you look closely you can see the sign for the police station, yeah no town here, the police are there only to watch the monastery, and in the second picture you can see what I thought was a boulder at the top of a hill covered with prayer flags but just kidding, it's a yak!
