Sky burials are what are very common here in this part of Tibet where corpses are cut and left for wild and devour. The people in this part of the world would always adhere to Vajrayana Buddhism, which teaches the transmigration of spirits.  This people believe that after the human dies, the body is an empty vessel and there is no need to preserve it.

However, in a lot of places in Qinqhai and Tibet, the ground is not ease to dig which is the reason the sky burials have become a better option. This is also one of the largest places for the study of the Tibetan Buddhism.  When prayer is carried out, it is done by spinning the decorative prayer wheels which are located around the Buddhist settlement.
