Another amazing Himalayan climb

Monks and Mera

I mentioned in an earlier post that “these people are devout”. Here’s an example. A Lama (monk) lives and prays year round in this monastery under a rock.  It’s small, as you can see but he welcomed us, prayed for us, and sent us on our way with good wishes for our success on Mera and Baruntse.The Lama explains that this rock symbolizes the various mountain peaks in the area.
