Info

Students play in Ngam-nak's indoor gymnasium during a break from classes. With temperatures reaching well below freezing, the building provides necessary shelter for playing students during TIbet's winter. 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.
