Photographer's Note

In Northern Sikkim, Thangu at around 4500 m is a little village used by tourists from Lachen (a small town on the bank of a tributary of the mighty Teesta, after which it is named) as a stop-over to acclimatize before reaching Gurudongmar Lake in the middle of a mountain desert at 5200 m.
Few of the villagers has opened shops in their front porch where they serve tea or coffee to tourists. On request the lady of the house may also prepare a hot bowl of Thukpa (Tibetan noodle soup) served in the warmth of the kitchen inside.
