    Edit Photo Details Happy kids of Rangdum   #kids #zanskar
    Rangdum is a tiny hamlet with ten houses, a couple food stalls and some guest houses (all for travelers who usually halt at Rangdum). A monastery is housed on a hillock 3km away from the village.The village is essentially a definition of "in the middle of nowhere". These kids were playing near the stupa when our trucks halted for lunch. We wondered what their lives must be like, living in such isolation. From what we saw, it sure seemed like a lot of fun!

    At first I was worried that this shot looked too posed. But the more I looked at it, the more I grew to like it. It shows what this village looks like, but also shows that the residents are open and friendly.
