Annapurna 12 10 Braga  [14 of 29]

Braga (3500m) is a Tibetan-style village of about 200 houses hiding behind a photogenic steep, eroded rock outcrop. The houses are stacked one atop the other, each with an open veranda formed by a neighbour’s rooftop. The gompa is perched on a high crag overlooking the village, and is estimated to be 400 to 500 years old. The gompa comprises three main buildings and belongs to the Kagyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism.
