So what can you hear at 12,774 feet above sea-level?

Dhankhar Monastery is situated at a height of 3,894 metres (12,774 feet) above sea-level. Standing on the road to Lalung, looking at the vast magnitude of the mountains stretching across and above the Confluence of the Pin (the river on the left disappearing into the mountains beyond) and the Spiti, all one can hear is the wind, the river, the birds, the soil under your feet as you shift, your breathing, your heartbeat, and your thoughts.
