Stock photo of a Tibetan House in the Spiti Valley region of the Indian Himalayas. A dramatic image of traditional mud brick house with Buddhist prayer flags and Himalaya mountain background. These traditional dwellings of the himalaya are built using traditional methods with timber and sun dried hand made bricks from the local earth. Although found in the Indian Himalaya they are like a Tibetan house in China due to the close proximity of the Tibetan Autonomous Region. Only international borders separate these Asian cultures, the peoples are of the same race and the same faith regarding their Buddhist beliefs.
