Bhutan is one of the most biodiverse country in the world. As of 2020, more than 72 percent of the total geographical area of the country is covered by forests. It’s the ‘only’ carbon negative country in the world where people live in perfect harmony with nature.
This is the bird’s eye view of Punakha Valley, located at an altitude of 4265 ft in the Himalayas. This place is considered to be one of Bhutan’s most scenic destinations.

There are about 19 islands around Acadia National Park in Maine. However only five of them (Mount Desert Island, Isle summer Haut, Bar island, Baker island and little Cranberry island) have public access.
Most of the islands are nesting ground for birds and can only be observed by boat or from air.

Despite the cold and the thin air, a family of five members walk on deadly snow turned into black ice on the Kashmir valley in the inner Himalayas. As the glaciers melt in the higher Himalayas, waters pours in the crevices and carved tunnels inside the ice.
Life for these mountain people has always been a challenge. More so with the earthquake induced landslides caused by the Indian plate continuously moving north under the Eurasian plate at a rate of 45mm a year.

“They shine like diamonds beneath evening moonbeams and glow like amber under a setting sun.” If there was one place on Earth where we can see the power of raw nature and the fragility of life it must be here in the Himalayas!
