Kalinchowk – 3,500 metres above sea level
We continue along roads that are in really bad shape until we reach Kalinchowk Bhagwati Temple, high up in the Himalayas. I make a note in my journal “a cold world with warm people”. In Nepal, we meet many people who have fled China and Tibet for religious reasons. The spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, the Dalai Lama, now resides in Dharamsala, India.
