From @omarbazaz - Nature speaks to us in such a way where a man becomes completely numb. We were listening to "U2- Where the streets have no name"; I was trying to figure out where I was. I tried google on my cell phone but luckily it didn't work. The place still remains a mystery to me and I can only connect to it with the song that was playing. It was raining in the vale, sun rays were peeking through low cloud cover on my back but somehow few rays were highlighting a peak infront of us. It was as if nature was trying to tell me how beautiful it is like a new bride in her best cloth; something that didn't move but made me wonder. How small I am when I stood in that rain against that silver lining. This feeling of being lost and to wander into unexplored lands of Kashmir.

From @pawanranta - Architechture of the temples and dwellings in Himachal Pradesh is in sync with topography, climatic conditions, raw material availability and cultural and traditional values of the region. Consecration of classical temples began in 7th century. In Chamba it started under the rule of King Meruvarman of Varman dynasty. Architechture style of the temples can be classified into three types: Nagara, Pent-roofed and Pagoda style. Mostly they are built in Kath-Kuni building technique. Deodar wood is the most durable and popular in construction and carving. The vernacular architecture of Chamba and Kinnaur makes use of wood and stone in the Kath-Khuni technique, where planks of wood and blocks of stone are mounted alternately to build housing structures, e.g., the Chaini–kothi in Kullu. Evolved kath-khuni architecture responds well to seismic tremors in the Himalayan region. Patrons of the classical temples were usually kings like Meruvarman and Sahillavarman of Chamba. Ranas and chiefs associated with the royalty would also give patronage to temples and kothis. Chini temple, Kalpa Kinnaur.

From @calucolellophoto - 📿🇧🇹 “For centuries, the monasteries have provided a home and an education to thousands of Bhutan's poorest children. More than 4,000 live and study in monasteries across the country, usually sent by parents who can't afford to feed their large families or pay for the uniforms and textbooks required by government schools. Officially, the monasteries take children of seven and older. In reality, many take children as young as five when they have nowhere else to go.” - #monks #bhutan #buddhism #travel #traveling #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instago #instagood #holiday #photooftheday #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel #himalayas #northeastindia (#india #nepal #bhutan #tibet #pakistan ) #keepHimalayasClean
From @sherpascinema - @apasherpafoundation climbed Mount Everest 21 times, more than any other human. But he wouldn't wish this for anyone. As a child, growing up in Nepal's remote Khumbu Valley, Apa Sherpa had to walk three hours to school...one way. He dreamt of being a doctor. But at the age of 12, after his father passed away, he took a job as a porter to support his family. Despite the risks of one of the world's most dangerous jobs, he would become a Himalayan legend. Follow us as we document the present day struggles of Pemba Sherpa, a young boy who's life path mirrors Apa when he was a child, and the work of the Apa Sherpa Foundation, as it aims to give the children of rural Nepal new opportunities. According to Apa, "without education you have no choice."- @thule Full film dropping in #may28th on @vimeo

From @emilypolar - The blue night sky above the Annapurna range. The glowing red lights at the bottom are controlled fires burning in vertical strips slowly but surely turning into round patches. #annapurna #ghorepani #travel #traveling #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instago #instagood #trip #holiday #photooftheday #fun #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel #himalayas #northeastindia (#india #nepal #bhutan #tibet #pakistan ) #keepHimalayasClean
