Nomad's tent on the Grasslands of Kham, Eastern Tibet, China

The Tundra of Eastern Tibet is bright green in the short summer season in July and August and white with snow most of the ten month winter season. Nomads graze yak, sheep and goats and live far from their neighbors. Their tents are cool in summer and warm in winter because the hand woven yak wool strips are loose when it is warm and tight in cold air.They look like huge spiders crouching on the green carpeted hills.
