Karsha is the largest gompa in Zanskar; preparations are being finished for tomorrow’s cham, masked dance, festival. young monks are carrying gas cylinders up the steep flights of stairs; in the prayer rooms fresh butter sculptures stand in front of glass cases containing gilt Buddhas. We walk through stupas that stand astride the paths and spin the prayer wheels, there’s an air of excitement and we’re made very welcome.
