Buddhist Temple in Upper Pisang - Annapurna Circuit, Nepal

The caretaker of the Tibetan Buddhist gompa (temple) in Upper Pisang lets us in for a look around in the late afternoon. The gompa's interior is beautifully painted with tantric Buddhist paintings. This gompa becomes even more impressive when we learned that it was a work of community cooperation, built with the labor (54 days per person) and contributions of the village. The talented painter was also local. Read more about our Annapurna Circuit trek. © www.uncorneredmarket.com
