The first month of the Tibetan Calender is holy and most Buddhists won't eat meat or drink alcohol at all. Every year, halfway the first month, Buddhists start to pray and kneel for 2,5 days in Leh, Ladakh, India. From 4am to 6pm they will pray and kneel, with some breaks for tea and lunch (on the 3rd day only from 4am tot 12am). In these 2,5 days they will cover a distance of 8km! All this for a good karma, and not only for themselves but for every living being in Ladakh. In 2014 Gochak was from the 15th of March to the 17th of March and more than 1300 people participated.

Some of you might know the movie "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty". In that movie there is a photographer, and he is spotting snowleopards and photographs them. He is sitting alone, on a mountain and sees them walking on the other mountain. At this moment, I feel the exact same. I'm sititng here totally alone, and on the opposite mountain, about 900 feet from me, there are 2 snowleopards lying down there. I'm sitting on a steep side of a mountain, nobody around me, you can't here anything, except for myself. I will show you the environment and then where the snowleopards are.
