Other Information - Setting

Other Information - Setting: The setting for this image has been established by cross-referencing it with the photographer Philip Neame's handlist. It was evidently taken when he returned from Lhasa rather than en route to the Tibetan capital [see Same Image As] [MS 24/08/2006]

Other Information - Location: Nangartse (snga dkar rtse) is situated on the route between Gyantse (rgyal rtse) and Lhasa north of the Yamdrok Tso (Yar 'brog mtsho) lake. The fortified building serve as the residence of the Dzongpon (rdzong dpon), the district governor, and as the adminstrative centre of the area. [TS 18/4/2005]
