Journey into the World of the Golden Wool – Pashmina – Changthag Plateau
Embark on a journey through a less-trodden path that unveils the vibrant ecosystem of the Pashmina World of Changpa Nomad pastoralists. Travellers will immerse themselves in wool harvesting, partake in the nomads’ rich tapestry of songs, music, rituals, and other artistic expressions, and gain insights into their challenges. Nestled within the Changthang Wildlife Sanctuary, amidst wild asses and snow leopards, the spiritual essence of the Dragon Tibetan Buddhists, known as Drukpa Kargyu, comes to life. The journey is a profound reflection of the connection between the pashmina ecosystem and the broader landscape, including Tso Moriri Lake, enriched with tales of flying dragons and meditative rituals meticulously documented by the curator.
