The Buddhist Academy of Lhung Gar in the city of Sertar is one of the most visited places of tourists of mysterious Tibet, and at the same time it is one of the most significant of the entire Buddhist community.

Every year, on the ninth month of the Tibetan calendar, at an altitude of more than 4,000 meters, a weekly meeting of Tibetan Buddhists is held here, which mark the descent of the Buddha from heaven. Impressive shots from impressive locations.
