Apple orchards

There are everywhere! And the orchards are big and in many places the land between the trees is used to grow other things like green peas and potatoes.

Fearless foursome - State of Himachal Pradesh

Fearless foursome

Local women

While hiking, we came across this group of local women who were heading out to gather wood from the forest. They told us some stories about bears and how they have seen them a few times. When asked if they were ever afraid of the bears, they laughed and walked away obviously thinking we were loonies to ask a question like that.

This peak is over 6000 meters tall - State of Himachal Pradesh

The magnificant Himalayas

The Himalayas are to use a cliched term awe-inspiring. One feels the vastness of nature when you see them. Peaks that are over 6000 and 7000 meters make you realise how insignificant you are. They are a sight I feel everyone should see at least once in their lifetime!

Address: North India

Directions: Anywhere from Ladakh to Sikkim

Power unleashed - State of Himachal Pradesh

Power unleashed

Electricity production

Along the river Sutluj, one comes across this major hydro electric generating unit. The unique aspect about this particular one is that it stops the flow of river Baspa, diverts in through the mountain and releases it in to the Sutluj thus generating electricity.

Directions: On the way from Shimla to Sangla - close to where the Baspa meets the Sutluj.

A tiny blue butterfly - State of Himachal Pradesh

Fauna

It is unique to this region. OF course we missed spring as we were there in the monsoons so didn't quite see as much as one would have in summer. But there were plenty of beautiful butterflies and birds.

Address: Look around!

The flora even in the monsoon season is spectacular. There are plenty of wild flowers everywhere, but the best time to see really beautiful ones, I was told, was in summer (May-June).

Buddhist-Hindu temple - State of Himachal Pradesh

Buddhist-Hindu temple

Buddhist-Hindu temple

This is a rather unique temple as it is influenced by Hinduism. The people here follow both Buddhist and Hindu traditions. The original temple was destroyed in a fire a few years ago and the local villagers have pooled in resources and are building it again. Thus they have included other religions in their carvings. One can see a carving of Jesus Christ as well on one of the outer walls. They are short of funds so it is still not completely built.

Address: Batseri village

Directions: One needs to cross the Baspa river to get to the village.
