Color tends to catch our eye and excite our brain, causing us to overlook the beauty of grey. Grey is rich and varied, noisy but also calming. On the Plateau, grey is everywhere, seconding the intensity of the brighter hues. It is found in the clouds and the lakes that reflect them, in the boulders strewn across the pasture, in the high rocky peaks. There are grey yaks, grey horses, grey wolves. There are buildings built of grey stone, roofs laid in grey clay or slate. Mantras are carved on grey stone, courtyards are paved in grey flagstones.
At Norlha, grey is one of the natural shades of yak khullu. It has an eternal quality; one never tires of grey.
