Photos from my recent Tibet trip: On January 1 we visited Drak Yerpa, a cave and temple complex 28 miles by jeep from Lhasa. There are over 80 caves here (108 by traditional count), some of them currently being used by meditators on extended retreats. Although the temples were badly damaged during the 60s upheavals some have been restored.
