Project info

Fieldwork in Kham Tibetan areas at Qinghai and Sichuan provinces, China.
Ponru hamlet – is a Tibetan Summer herding area located at the altitude of 4.300 meters. The Tibetan nomads are staying in tents with their children attending the small school, where I stayed for a week in august 2005. The school is now closed by authorities enforcing the children to attend boarding schools in larger cities.
