Tenpa Dugdak

Tenpa Dugdak was born in the town of Sok in Kham province, twelve hours north-east of Lhasa. When Tenpa was four his mother decided to flee Tibet to be with his father who had escaped the year before. It took 30 days to cross the Himalayas. They travelled mostly in the darkness to avoid being seen by the Chinese troops. At the age of six he was sent to a Tibetan Homes boarding school in Mussoorie, India and was taught the Tibetan language, Buddhism and the history Tibetan culture. His mother died when he was a little boy. Dugdak moved to Australia with his father, and his two sisters, in 2002. Tenpa Dugdak lives in Sydney, Australia.
