On any given day on the vast Plateau you will find nomads herding their yak and sheep and monks reciting their mantras. You will also find them playing one of their favorite sports: Basketball

Norlha Basketball consists of the nomads of the Zorge Ritoma region, the nomads-turned-artisans of Norlha Textiles, and an advisory board of local monks. Both men and women of Ritoma play nearly every day in the snow and freezing temperatures, and in tournaments with up to 60 teams from surrounding clans and monasteries.
