the saltmen of Tibet- a documentary

Long time ago, while roaming the tourist market in Dharamsala/ India I found this great documentary about salt harvesters of Tibet.

A group of nomads head out to the saltlakes into the Chang Tang in Tibet to harvest salt to trade it for other goods of daily needs. This movie shows the annual trip involving a strict ritual of worship and hard work placed into an unbelievable scenery.

Enjoy it!
