Set in a wild, big-sky valley, wind-scoured Rangdum is the first Buddhist village heading for Zanskar. Eastwards the horizon is an arid pastiche of oddly contorted strata fronted by the dot of Rangdum Gompa , 5km away, looking like a tiny island floating above the valley floor. The gompa’s 25 yellow-hatted monks are outnumbered by monastery donkeys, who sleep inside at night.
