We had planned to attend a masked Cham dance in a monastery in Pelling on the occasion of the Tibetan New Year. Unfortunately, with the monastery lama having just passed away, the show was canceled. We attended a prayer session instead of the choreography. I'm not sure we lost on the exchange.

Pelling is a small town in Sikkim in the Indian Himalayas. The whole region has remained strongly Buddhist and there are among others the Pemayangtse and Sanga Choeling monasteries.
