Abstract:

Tropical leaves frame snow-covered peaks. A tiger prowls in the lowlands and a yak inspects his harem in the highlands. People follow the cycles of the agricultural year and the daily and weekly rhythms of urban markets. Women pray at Hindu shrines and monks sip tea in Buddhist monasteries. These are parts of the world where art evokes the deities and dances give joy to the spirit. These are lands and people of the Himalayas. Created from the collision of the Indian subcontinent with the rest of Eurasia, the Himalayas rise up like a great wall affecting climate and life styles on both sides of the mighty ranges. Sid and Mary Lee Nolan explore Nepal from the Hindu cities of the Kathamandu Valley to the river threaded Terai lowlands with their famous Royal Chitwan National Park and Lumbini, birthplace of the Buddha. After an excursion to Pokara, with its views of the dramatic Annapurna Range, the Nolan's continue to Ladakh, India's "Little Tibet".
