‘Dhampus - High and dry in the sky’


The photo shows part of another picture with a street view that I showed some days ago.
But here you see only the upper part (the first floor) of one building.
Under the pumpkins there’s a second roof covering a gallery on the ground floor.
Between the two floors, a small landing on the outside of the house provides space for the pumpkins.
We also see corn and very weathered Tibetan prayer flags.

The people of Dhampus belong to the ethnic Gurung community.
The Gurung religious traditions are basically animistic but according to their legend, the Gurung were a wandering tribe that travelled across Tibet prior to their arrival in Nepal.
