Tsum Valley Photography
Here is a nice email from Lopsang Lama from Tsum the Tsumba who has been travelling around the Greek Islands, Venice to Croatia, Egypt, Turkey in his work as security personnel on a cruise ship.
He’s included a few photos from Tsum which you can find at the bottom of this page which he hopes will encourage you to visit his home valley, Tsum.

And now in Italy! It is interesting to hear from Lopsang about not using images of people for commercial purposes:
…for website its ok. I hope my picture see many people but in portrait I am very serious about its misuse. I never allow to use in postcard or commercial purpose. I can not kill local people’s sentiment. They know me. But if you can use in website no problem i willing to [add] more in your website and Tsum Manaslu section and to more advertise in all over world.
