Himalayas: trekking around Annapurna mount
Himalayas. Nepal. This is the way around the mount Annapurna down from Jomsom. It's
the good place for trekking. You came to Jomsom by plane and then - go down.
The mountain, of course... But the trails are in very good condition. As you can
see, sometimes even arranged steps. Still - it is the only way down, Jomsom's
people get all the creature comforts by this way:
There are the great porters Sherpas. They are working. Well, as we are - on
vacation, we can not even walk and walk. Little horses in the mountains is very
hardy, local teamster all the way to guide your horse for a string, so you do
not fall into the abyss. When you are traveling on horseback, the travel became
much more comfortable, and by the way, it became available not for the
young and fit only.
Now we go along the dry riverbed - Himalayan
rivers noticeably shallow in autumn.
Himalayas village. Firewood
Monastery in the mountains
It is the Tibetan Mastiff. When I saw this dog, I was struck by how it looks
like ... Himalayan yak! Of course, the yak is more then the dog, even such a
large dog as the Tibetan Mastiff. But look, they have exactly the same thick
black hair. I'd say it's Himalayan wool, it is not characteristic of normal
dogs, and even more so for the bulls - because yak is such a Himalayan bull.
Probably there, high in the mountains, this coat is a must for all animals.
Unfortunately I have not photographed Himalayan yak, but I assure you, it looks
exactly like this Tibetan yak >>
