Photographer's Note

This place is called Cross hill. It's 3 Kmtrs from Pedong bazaar. The priest Augustine Desgodins laid this holy cross as a landmark cairn in 1882 on his way to Tibet thru the Nathula Pass to preach Christianity. However he had to recede as opposed by the orthodox Tibetans at that time. It is considered to have miraculous powers and a place of Pilgrimage for the local Christian Community.

I have posted another version in the workshop.
