SWF: Mana Village

For a variety of skies around the world, do visit SkyWatchFriday.



Mana Village
Uttarakhand, India

I shot these pictures while on a short trek from Badrinath to the Himalayan Mana Village in August 2008. It is the last village at the Indo-Tibet border. Some places famous in Hindu mythology like Vyas Gufa, Ganesh Gufa, Bhimpul, Vasudhara Falls lie close to the Mana Village. In winter, the villagers move down to Joshimath or Chamoli when thick snow blankets the Mana Village.

Your photos are beautiful! What scenic captures and so much more interesting than what I have in my immediate area.

Too many houses around me block my view! LOL.

Even though I don’t have time to drop by every day those days, when I do, I read every bit! Greetings from the sunny but cold Shuswap and Happy Valentine, Celine!

I can imagine the pristine, clean air up there as you soak up the view.

Celine,
I apologize for my absence. Shame on me for not visiting. - Well, my dear, as I catch up... flipping through your posts I see beautiful places (as usual), your reflective and emotional poetry and also your humor. The marriage post and your New Year's resolutions (especially your office mate) had me smiling and giggling.
