Tibetan Buddhist monk protects himself from the smell of decomposing bodies as vultures come from skies... 
A Tibetan Buddhist monk protects himself from the smell of decomposing bodies as vultures come from skies for a sky burial 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.
