Chorten in the Nepal mountains. Tetang, Upper Mustang, Nepal

Stupa or chorten in Tibet is a symbol of one of the grades of Buddha's enlightenment. But in that area it's not only the sacred place, the main role of them is to be something like a lighthouse for the sailors. In the haze in that smooth mountain desert landscape they shows the stranger way to the closest village.
