GALLERY   Sogan Rinpoche at home in Golok, 2007  (Part 2)
Tibet is often called the "Land of Snows," but in summertime the frozen landscape is transformed into rolling grasslands with fields of wildflowers and pristine rivers, lakes and ponds. During the warmer months nomads move to higher elevations with their herds – they go to their "summer place." When Rinpoche returned to his homeland in July, 2007, he journeyed by horseback to visit his family's traditional summer place.
Photos on this page give a glimpse of that ancient way of life of the native inhabitants of the Tibetan high plateau.
