back in the outback: amazing phuktal monastery in zanskar, in a cave high above the rocks. i trekked there already in 2015 and not much has changed since then. probably not since 1815 as well 😉
i could even participate in a school lesson for the 16-year-old guys. very cool experience, although i understood that there are more interesting things than education 🙃 
however, in about 2 years the trans-zanskar road might be finished and usable and then a high number of local tourists might flock in... #phuktal #phuktalmonastery #buddhistmonastery #monastery #monasterylife #tibetanbuddhism #tibet #ladakh #zanskar #india

cloudless on the altiplano: while some latin american cities have amazing cultural heritage and others a blessed sea-side location, it is la paz, that takes my breath away. every time i return. la paz/el alto, the highest capital in the world is also the only city that spreads over nearly 1000m of altitude reaching from about 3100m.as.l. to more than 4000. nowadays it is possible to go conveniently up- and downhill in a cable car. illimani (6439m) dominates the horizon.
