Info

Night falls over the village of Ngam-nak, one of the last habitated communities before reaching the source of the Mekong river. Ngam-nak serves as a school for Tibetan nomadic children, who are dropped off by their parents and spend 8 months a year in the remote settlement until they have completed a basic level of education. Staffed by a handful of teachers and cooks, there are no other activities in Ngam-nak apart from the school.
