306 Khobang Entrance  [21 of 23]

“We came upon a number of prayer walls adorned with slabs of rock upon which we read the classic inscription: "Om mane padme hum." We were careful to respect the religious observances of these peoples, and to pass on the left of the walls” (Maurice Herzog, Annapurna). The houses of Khobang (2580m) are located in a central tunnel that passes through the settlement to try and protect against the strong winds.
