Waking up in Phyang

Today we woke up to the chanting of the monastery. It is located on a hill overlooking the valley we are staying in. Back at home my sleep is abruptly halted with a harsh alarm, but in Ladakh the beautiful chanting slowly and pleasantly brought me to consciousness. A lot of people were up and about as early as 5:30. Waking up in this way energizes us for the rest of the day ahead.
