Located beyond the 5050m Chola Pass, a blood red monastery still uses wet ink and rollers to print its religious message. Within the walls of Derge Parkhang some 217,000 carved wooden blocks are shelved in Tibet’s most treasured library. Most of these are the original and last standing Buddhist manuscripts to remain after China’s revolution. Today workers gather in pairs, stretch paper over each individual slate and using a roller at lightening speed copy the manuscript. 2000-3000 printed sheets are created each day and sit upon the monastery’s roof to dry.
