Strange instrument for a land locked region.

When I was originally researching Tibetan m montanous usic for my historical perspectives paper, I came across some other instruments that were not involved in the Tantric ceremonies I was interested in.  this brass conch shell, or Dung, is one such example.  What I find very interesting about this instrument is that it meant to resemble a conch shell......and tibet is a land locked mountainous region.
