"The mountains are calling, and I must go." – John Muir
HIMALAYAN MOUNTAINS - PART 1
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, I haven't traveled for a long time, this time I had the opportunity to go to a country that is very beautiful for its Himalayan mountains, namely NEPAL. Let's see how I shoot the longest and highest mountain terrain in the world.
To photograph the Himalayan mountain range, I used a helicopter and airplane that circled the Himalayan region from the Nepal side, until I went to Annapurna Base Camp at an altitude of 4130m.
The Himalayas are a mountain range in Asia, separating the Indian subcontinent from the Tibetan plateau.
The Himalayas are where the highest mountains in the world, for example
Mount Everest and Kangchenjungga are located.
Etymologically, Himalaya means 'snow residence' in Sanskrit (from hima 'snow', and aalaya 'snow').
The Himalayas extend along five countries — Afganistan, Pakistan, India, China, Bhutan, Nepal and Myanmar. It is the source of the world's two major river systems — the Indus River and the Ganga-Brahmaputra River. About 750 million people live in the area around the watershed from the Himalayas, including Bangladesh.
