Web Abstract: 
Located high in the Himalayan mountains, this describes a set of eco-friendly, non-denominational school buildings, combining modern education with local Buddhist culture, being constructed over a phased, ten-year seasonal program by ARUP. The project aims to eventually provide education facilities for up to 800 pupils, aged 3 to 18, from poor and remote areas. On completion, facilities will include a health clinic, library, open-air temple, computer and science lab, vocational workshops, dining hall and residential accommodation for pupils and staff.
