LARUNG, China
ATTENTION EDITORS - VISUALS COVERAGE OF SCENES OF DEATH OR INJURYEthnic Tibetans carry a body of their deceased relative, before being taken for a sky burial, around a monastery for 80 times at the Larung valley located some 3700 to 4000 metres above the sea level in Sertar county, Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan province, China October 30, 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 30, 2015.
