I am always amazed when I see animals thriving in unforgiving conditions. But, that is how nature provides for and protects all its species even in the toughest conditions. Hence, even in one of the coldest places on the planet, the Changthang Cold Desert, the wild horses seem to be perfectly at home.
Their thick fur and their ability to sniff out grass even in the driest of terrain make them survive these supremely cold conditions. While most of these horses roam wild in the cold desert, some of them are tamed by the Changpa nomads and used as ‘beasts of burden’ to transport precious pashmina wool and the likes.
