If ever you get a chance to visit a typical Tibetan nomad's tent, you will surely see the following things inside it:
a stove at the center of the household
small Buddhist altar, butter candles
and the small pile of the dried dung of yak
It seldom happens that a tourist gets the chance to enter the household of a nomad Tibetan. Yet, given a chance, it would be good for you to observe some simple etiquette when visiting a nomad’s tent. You should, for example, not touch or point to their Buddhist altar or ornaments casually. Moreover, you should never point your feet towards their stoves for they consider their stoves as sacred. Your host will also keep on refilling your cup of barleywine once you have consumed the wine in your cup. Be courteous enough to tell your host that you had enough.
