Photo by @andrea_frazzetta | Local women pose for a portrait in front of Noijin Kangsang in Tibet. This massive glacier in the Lhagoi Kangri chain is the closest major peak to Lhasa. It is a holy peak for the locals and people burn incense and put prayer flags near it. Tibetan prayer flags are traditionally used to promote peace, wisdom, compassion, and strength. Tibetans believe the wind will blow the prayers and mantras into the surroundings, spreading goodwill and compassion.
