and the waters and the sky and the heavens
seem all to be in meditation."     Upanishads

Travel photography tips -- helpful information.


Manali India is a large hill station in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains.
It's about 7,700 feet above sea level in the Kullu, Valley.   
Manali  is a major transportation junction with roads going out
to Dharamsala and Rohtang pass, 13,000 feet.

                   Manali is in the upper section of the Beas River valley a few hundred miles north of Delhi.
  The views are spectacular and the air is fresh and clear.   The entire valley is called
the "valley of the Gods", because Manu, the Hindu version of Noah, came to settle here after the great deluge.
Later, a council of the "gods" was setup in nearby Naggar, where they governed democratically.

         The valley is full of apple orchards, surrounded by steep mountains, many of them topped by snow eternally.    Another town near Manali is Manikaran, also founded by Manu.    It is revered as the meditation
 spot of Shiva, and his consort Parvati.   It's on the Parvati River, and has hot springs.

          The Himalayas are the source of the sacred Jumna and Ganges rivers.   
There are two other rivers as well, that are considered sacred.  They begin very high in the mountains, and many faithful Hindus try to reach at least one of the  sacred sources during their lifetime.     For thousands of years, these great rivers have literally brought   life to countless people, in the form of water for irrigation and every other need.

Beware.... traveling around the Himalayas by car is not for everybody !   The roads are narrow, sometimes with steep cliffs next to them,  and the roads are shared by everyone from shepherds with goats
to fairly large trucks and buses.  Drivers use their horns constantly.
