A Month in the Mountains
Just home from a month in Uttaranchal with a group of brilliant people :) Snaps are finally on my computer, so we’ll be able to share a bit of the beauty with everyone. Here’s a sneak peek – a view of the Api-Nampa Range in Nepal. We were on the other side of the Kali river in India resting in a beautiful village called Gunji having walked a whole day to get there from Chhialekh…when the clouds parted and this panorama unfolded. The name Api is Tibetan for Grandmother and the name of its neighbour Nampa is derived from the Tibetan expression gnampa-p’a meaning Holy Father.
And here’s my favourite flower – the geranium. Many varieties followed us from the Garhwal Himalayas to Kumaon – purples, violets, pinks and lilacs!
