Caption: Ploughing fields at Thonde, Zanskar, India. A Yak- cow Hybrid called dzo (female - dzomo) is used to pull the simple ploughs used in Zanskar. These fields are being ploughed after the harvest and before the onset of the cold snowy winter, where temperatures will drop (at 3000m) to -30 degrees C. In other villages, the fields are only ploughed in the spring before the barley is sown.
