Meet the Last Remaining Guardians of Ancient Tibetan Culture


 

Concealed within an isolated region of the Himalayas, the people of Humla’s faces are etched with time. They consider themselves to be the last stronghold of pure Tibetan culture.

“THE HUMLA PEOPLE, WITH THEIR TRADITIONS ENCASED NOT ONLY IN CULTURE BUT GUARDED BY THE MOUNTAINS THEY LIVE WITHIN, ARE RESILIENT IN EXPANSIVE WAYS. THEIR LIVES ARE A TESTAMENT TO THE STRENGTH OF COMMUNITY.”
