Khawa Karpo ཁ་བ་དཀར་པོ་། 6740m

Across the gorge as you approach Dechen from Tsakhalho and Hongsan, there are truly dramatic views of the Kawa Karpo glaciers. The astonishing main glacier of Mount5 Kawa Karpo deceives the eye, appearing to plunge downwards almost to the level of the Dza chu རྫ་ཆུ་ (Mekong) in the gorge below. This mighty watershed range has 13 snow peaks forming a north-south alignment.

Among them, Mount Kawa Karpo, the highest, is 6740m, and to its north is Mount Dradul Wangchuk (6379m ). Immediately south of Kawa Karpo, there is a glacial protuberance known as Phakpa Neten Chudruk, and to its south Mount Pawo Pamo (6000 m),followed in succession by the spectacular five-peaked crown of Mount Gyelwa Riknga (5471 m), and two lesser peaks known as Chugen-je and Tsela Nyenpo. Kawa Karpo itself is conceived as a male protector deity and Men Tsunmo as the corresponding female consort. The range is an important focal point for pilgrimage, revered as one of the 25 important meditation sites associated with Padmasambhava in Kham and Amdo. Specifically, this mountain range symbolizesthe body- aspect of buddha-speech. In the past its sanctuaries and hermitages have been a stronghold of the Nyingmapa school. Vairocana gave teachings on Dzogchen to his followers at Tsawarong, to the northwest of the range; and there are branches of Katok Monastery in its environs. The most renowned figure in this lineage was Kawakarpowa Namka Gyatso who, with his teacher Khedrup Yeshe Gyeltsen, expounded the Katok lineage throughout this extreme southern region of Kham. www.footprinttravelguides.com/c/2848/tibet/&Action=pr...

Dzogchen Gonpa རྫོགས་ཆེན་དགོན་པ་

Dzochen Rudam Orgyen Samten Choling Gonpa རྫོགས་ཆེན་དགོན་པ་ Dzogchen Monastery (Tib. rdzogs chen dgon pa) is one of the six great monasteries of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Concealed valley of Rudam Kyitram, dominated to the southwest by the jagged snow peaks of Mount Dorje Ziltrom 5816 m.

The monastery was founded in 1684-1685 on the advice of the Fifth Dalai Lama, by the charismatic the First Dzogchen Pema Rigdzin (1625-1697), and it was subsequently maintained by his students, including Zhechen Rabjam Tenpei Gyeltsen, and by his successive incarnations. Among the latter, the Second Dzogchen Gyurme Tekchok Tenzin (1699-1758) is known to have inspired the king of Derge to construct the famous Derge Parkhang, the Third Dzogchen Ngedon Tenzin Zangpo (1759-1792) built 13 hermitages, colleges and mantra-wheels, the Fourth Dzogchen Migyur Namkei Dorje (b 1793) presided over the monastery when its greatest college was founded, and the Fifth Dzogchen Tubten Chokyi Dorje (1872-1935) increased its branches to over 200 throughout Kham, Amdo and Central Tibet. The mother monastery itself had a population of 1000 monks. The Sixth Dzogchen Jikdrel Jangchub Dorje (1935-1959) died tragically during the resistance to the Chinese occupation of East Tibet, and his reliquary is even now revered in the main temple. The Seventh Dzogchen Rinpoche lives in Karnataka in South India, where he has constructed a branch of the monastery. Meanwhile, at the mother monastery in Kham, an alternative Dzogchen Rinpoche has recently been recognized. www.footprinttravelguides.com/c/2848/tibet/&Action=pr...

Nomadic tents are a vital source of housing for nomads living in mountainous regions of Central Asia. They are usually made from yak wool that has been hand spun into yarn and takes about a year to make a mid-sized tent.

Tibetan tents on the contrary are very thin in comparison where the sky can be seen through the hand spun yarn inside the tent. Nomad tents are held up using hand spun yak wool rope and 8 to 12 wooden poles. The top of the tent has a large opening that is used to let smoke out and to let the warm sunshine in. Prayer flags are in abundance and can be found flying from the tent roofs.

The inside of nomad tents are very basic as the nomads, often very poor, own few belongings. Inside there will be some sleeping mats and blankets, a stove, a table or two, a few extra clothes and a little food. Nearly all tents will have a picture of a local lama and often will have a picture of the 14th Dalai Lama. A thangka painting will also be found hanging inside.

Traditionally yaks are kept tied up outside of the tent using lines of rope with have 8 to 10 small loops around one of the yaks feet at night (or tied through the yak's nose) that are made secure by two wooden stakes driven into the ground. A few dogs will also be kept tied up outside the tent. Large piles of dried yak dung are stored close to the tent as an important source of fuel. It is even common to see Tibetan buddhist sculptures made in the yak dung.

Hand woven yak wool tents are declining rapidly. Many nomads now only live in these tents in the summer months. They increasingly live in mud-brick homes the rest of the year. Others are now moving into towns to live in traditional style Tibetan homes or are being relocated into cities (such as Xining) where the government provides them with a modern style apartment.
