Traditional stone houses in Tibet

October,21 2020 BY Master Catherine Jigme 0 COMMENTS

When you travel in Tibet, you might see some traditional stone houses in remote Tibet. In order to adapt to the weather conditions and environment in the Qinghai-Tibet plateau, the Tibetan traditionally built stone houses. Village cottages in remote mountains and deep canyons are built up by stone slices that are connected with clay, and the gaps between the slices are filled with the crushed stone pieces. By this way, the stone houses are firm and tidy.
