Prayer wheels are another common site in the Himalayas, according to Tibetan Buddhists they encourage good karma when spun in a clockwise direction. #Tibet #buddhism #prayerwheels #travel 📸 by @christopher_parsons_

@christopher_parsons_ crossing near Phortse over the Dudh Koshi river in @RAB.equipment. Parsons mentioned that while he imagined the glaciers to be similar to those in Iceland they were in fact harder to spot. They are often covered by debris and soil, which conducts heat and insulates the ice encouraging recession.

A common sight when trekking in Nepal are Mani Stones; painted or engraved boulders and stone pillars. The writing is often Buddhist prayers or mantras; they can be seen all along the Everest trail. ⠀
