Bhutanese woman rests in the tent she made from yak wool

Wangmo is a bhutanese noman shepherdess, who lives high in the mountains with 49 yaks and 9 horses. I met her after a 9-hour hike through the mountains - she sat in her knitted yak wool tent, wearing a traditional bamboo hat and joyfully greeted the guests.
