The chief elder Tinle learns of the death of his son after the return of a caravan from such a journey. He becomes despondent and accuses one of the young men of failing to protect his son from death during the journey. Although other men who were there told Tinle that Karma the caravan leader had done all he could to save his son, Lhaka and had even placed himself in danger to bring back his body, Tinle is not convinced. The preparation for another journey begins but Karma and Tinle disagree on the timing of the journey. Karma convinces a group of young men to embark early due to avoid possible snow storms. Based on past experience and the advice he sought from the Buddhist monks, Tinle leaves four days later.
The most emotionally satisfying and beautiful aspects of this story revolve around relationships, one being how Tinle and Karma each grow as human beings when they lead a band of men, women, and children on this arduous but life-sustaining journey through steep mountain trails with deep gorges below them.Read more ›
