The Institute was founded in 1980 by Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, an influential lama of Nyingma sect of Tibetan buddhism with only around 30 students but is now widely known as one of the biggest centres to study Tibetan Buddhism in the world. Today, tens of thousands monks and nuns live in small houses and log cabins surrounding the Larung Wuming Buddhist Institute. Picture taken November 1, 2015. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj

An ethnic Tibetan woman from Kham area wearing traditional amber headwear looks at fake human skulls placed inside a room at the site for sky burials near the Larung valley located some 3700 to 4000 metres above the sea level in Sertar county, Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan province, China October 31, 2015. In early afternoons, on a hill near famous Larung Wuming Buddhist Institute relatives and onlookers gather for sky burials in which bodies of deceased people are offered to vultures to prey upon it. Such burials are practiced by some Tibetans and Mongolian in China as an extreme type of Buddhist's "self-sacrifice almsgiving". It is believed that feeding vultures with decomposed corpse of relatives on top of a mountain is a respectful to pay tribute to their passed-away beloved ones. Picture taken October 31, 2015.
