After saying good-bye to the elderly guesthouse couple in Lashi village, we traveled to Zhiyun Monastery. Typical of Tibetan monasteries, rainbow bands of prayer flags welcomed us, fluttering in the breeze. Beautiful stonework, similar to the style I saw at the guesthouse, adorned the walkway.
With around 74 young monk apprentices, the Zhiyun Monastery was not tranquil. These saffron-clad youngsters took advantage of the flat space to play some soccer.
