Yangchan Tsering milks a yak on 2nd June 2009 as her daughter Dolka plays in the fields. Their relatives run a home stay program in Ulley Valley, a scattered village of only 5 houses, one school, 38 people, 4 school children, and 4 pet dogs. The village is not accessible by road. The homestay program is managed by 'Snow Leopard Conservation Organisation', an NGO that helps families in the mountains that face constant snow leopard attacks on their live stock. Ulley is located in the region of Ladakh, located in the Indian Himalayas, in the northern state of Jammu and Kashmir. Photo by Suzanne Lee
