The outstanding exterior feature of a classic Tibetan house is the doors and Windows with vertical inclined framing, normally in black. Mud brick walls form a perimeter around the house and a patio within them. Over the wall locals pile up scarce wood for the long winter. Before communications meant they could way wood from neighbouring regions, locals in Western Tibet depended on yak shit… The grid windows, (in the back) are also quite normal in Tibet.
