Yak Herding Sling


Yak Herding Sling


These slings are used mainly by women on the high grasslands for herding yaks home in the evening. The sling is swung over the head in a swift motion and suddenly released, to let fly a small stone or piece of dried dung. These are made by women in Genong Clan, Lhagang District, of yak hair and a piece of handmade wool felt for the pad.
