I had to run out of exotic names at some point.
My last post on Baralacha La has to once again do with Buddhism. My first post on this series (To Infinity and Beyond) featured a small prayer mound of stones which had been placed by Buddhists fairly close to the prayer flags.
On the other side of the road however, one could see a lot many more of these prayer mounds of stones heaped over a small hill, making the hill look eerily artificially constructed.
If you look closely at the picture you see the little rocks carefully placed on top of the naturally occurring large rocks to form little mounds. This must have taken time and patience considering nothing seems to fall off because of the wind.
