The 12th Gyalwang Drukpa, Jigme Pema Wangchen, smiles during a news conference in the northern Indian city of Chandigarh May 22, 2009. The Gyalwang Drukpa are a line of lamas believed to be re-incarnates, and are the heads of the Drukpa school of Tibetan Buddhism. The Gyalwang Drukpa on Friday announced the flagging-off of the Drukpa Pad Yatra (walking pilgrimage) between May 23 to July 3, 2009, when over 600 Buddhist monks will undertake a spiritual journey spanning 400 km (249 miles) across the Himalayan mountains from Manali to Ladakh.
