It was snowing. 2 young Tibetans were making 'long kowtow' --- fully lay down his body until face touched ground (note the color of his nose). By their body in this way, they will measure every inch of hundreds miles from their home village to Budala Palace, Lhasa and more holy temples, mountains and lakes. The trip of pilgrimage would take months or, probably, years. Nobody can make even a single miles without the strongest belief, which you can find in the eyes of the young man.
