Surviving in Himalaya ????????


Surviving in Himalaya ????????

■ NEPAL, HIMALAYA: Surviving the brutal conditions of the Himalayan mountains is no joke. But the many peoples that call these mountains home; Sherpas, Tamangs and Tibetans just to name a few, have adapted fairly well. The ox looking animal known as the Yak is key to their adaption.

Yak bulls and cows gives these mountain dwelling people milk, fur, meat, insulation, cement and also fuel! Yes, you heard right. Yak dung is used as fire-wood; fueling stoves and warm meals in communities living way above the tree-line.

Kyanjin Gumpa, which sits at 4000m above sea level, actually do have a little forest growing on a mountain nearby. Exactly how, given that the mountainside the town is built on is completely treeless, I never got a proper answer to. I did notice some small streams coming down the mountain the forest grows on though, meaning it's probably perpetually naturally irrigated.

The people living in Kyaanjin Gumpa hence don't have to solely rely on Yak dung for all their heat and cooking needs. But they do use it to supplement their fires, which regardless of which fuel is being burnt, are incredibly labor intensive to maintain.

Just how labor intensive exactly? Well you be the judge as I become a Himalayan Yak Dung Hunter for a day.... ????

13 Hours Hiking Up Himalaya Alone????????

■ NEPAL, HIMALAYA: With Snickers, Chow Mein and Gongo aboard, I was ready to once again soldier up the Himalayan mountainside. But for how long? And to where? I had no real end goal in sight. If I found a nice lodge I'd simply set up shop for the night. If not, I'd just keep hiking up.

And hike I did as the hours flew by. As I kept climbing, the scenery kept changing fueling my thirst for further exploration. The spectacular Himalayan Lord of the Ringsesque forests, rivers, cliffs, wild deers and ruins of old abandoned settlements had me so intrigued, I wanted to see what's around the next corner, regardless of how much my legs told me they wanted no further part in this trek.

Already at 7:00AM, just two hours after leaving Bamboo Lodge, I had been so exhausted, thoughts of setting up shop at the first lodge possible had started creeping in. Somehow I had kept going. But now as the clock turned to 04:30PM, after nearly 12 hours of hiking uphill, fatigue started getting the better of me .....

A Winter Storm in Changthang | Living with the Changpas of Ladakh - 4/6

The Changpas have a complicated relationship with snowfall. They need good winter snow for the grass to grow well during the summers. But too much snowfall can create trouble for them by burying the grass necessary for the survival of their animals.

A winter storm is the worst nightmare for the Changpas. And on the 3rd week of my living with the Changpas a winter storm is exactly what we got.

Trekking Himalaya at Night ????????

■ NEPAL, HIMALAYA: At 4:45AM my alarm kicked off and 20 minutes later I was on my way up the Himalayas in total darkness. Bears, snow leopards, blackface Trudeau monkeys and a host of other potentially dangerous wild animals roam these lands but with the exception of the bears, whom are in hibernation at this time a year, the others are not to fond of people and should pose no problem what so ever as long as I don't venture far of course into the wilderness.

In total darkness, only seeing whatever my headlight pointed at... I kept trekking uphill for what was going to be the greatest endurance and strength test of my entire life.

The daily habits of Himalayan people I SLICE

Zanskar, a Tibet’s mountainous province, is home to one of the most isolated populations in the world. Because of the icy and snowy winter, for nearly 8 months, the inhabitants of the surrounding villages are completely disengaged from the world. While a new road is being built to link them to the other side of the mountain, they invite us to discover their daily habits. Between modernity and ancestral traditions, we follow their routines and ceremonies, from the barley harvest before the Great Winter to the wedding of one of the young women of the village.

Extract from the documentary: “People of the World - People of Zanskar”

What is the life of local villagers like? Come with me to explore the villager’s life and its culture at 4500m altitude in Tibet.

It was so lucky that we went to this village during the Wango Festival, which is annually held in rural Tibet for the coming harvest. You could not only see the daily work of a local family, but also experience the traditional way to celebrate the Wango Festival.

The Sherpas (The Himalaya's Natives - Full Documentary) | TRACKS

Bordering Nepal and Tibet, we find the highest mountains in the world; the Himalayas. This is the home for the Sherpas, from where the first man to climb Mount Everest came from. This documentary follows three brothers, all native to the Himalayas but living completely different lives.

The documentary series “Disappearing World” was originally broadcasted between 1970-1975.
As an anthropological landmark of its time, the series tells the story of traditional communities endangered by the modern world’s progressions.
The series stands as a historical document of daily life in remote and threatened societies, such as the Cuiva, Embera and Panare Indians of Colombia, the nomadic Tuareg of the Sahara, the Kurdish Dervishes and the Meo of China.

Mount Everest Expedition 2019 - What went wrong ? On summit climb | Life vs Death | Survival reality

This video explains my climb up to 8300 meters and the reason of not being able to summit Mt. Everest. Please watch summit video of 2021-

We started to climb towards summit from Camp 4 at 930 in the evening of 15th May. Everything was perfectly going but unfortunately my guide got sick after we climbed for 2 hours and we got back to Camp 4 and slept. Then we planned to climb next night the 16th May but weather started to freakout so we had to sleep another night at Camp 4 and next day we came back to Base Camp. So we slept two nights at Camp 4 and returned to Base Camp.

A Winter's Day in Changthang | Living with the Changpas of Ladakh - 2/6

The changpas are a tribe of semi-nomadic people who live in Changthang, the high altitude plains of Ladakh and northern Tibet. Crops do not grow at these high altitudes, so the Changpas survive by raising goats and yaks. It is a hard life as they spend almost every moment days taking care of their animals and processing their produce.

In this episode we will see what a typical day of a Changpa is like during the winters. Everything from their activities at home, in the village and out in the plains with their animals.

Himalaya Gongo Hotel ????????

■ NEPAL, HIMALAYA: Ever since I'd ran into an Indian trekker coming back down along the Langtang river on my first day of this Himalayan excursion, I've had one thing on my mind: get to Tibet Guesthouse at Lama Hotel rest-stop and try their Gongo (or Roksi as it's called in Nepal).

I always like to sample locally made brews when I'm in a new country and according to this Indian who had just spent the previous night at Tibet Hotel, the owner there had made the best Gongo he'd ever had in his entire life.

In fact, and I quote: He has brewed it to perfection!, he said.

That's why I set out from Bamboo Lodge so early in the morning without even eating anything other than a granola bar. I wanted to get to Tibet Guesthouse as soon as possible to start the day like any real man should: with a fresh shot of Gongo!

What I didn't expect though was to run into the coolest and nicest couple I met on my whole Himalayan trekking adventure. A couple that started the very first lodge at the Hotel Lama location over 40 years ago and are still running that same guesthouse today.

■ Now before you watch, or after for that matter, I'd like to comment on what you see in the very beginning here, which I actually fully understand given the hard times hotel and guesthouse operators face, but still rubs me the wrong way. As I'm walking into this area here called Lama hotel I already knew where I was going: Tibet Guesthouse.

Every-time I entered a cluster of guesthouses like this, the people who run the first hotels and restaurants will of course be outside trying their best get you to stop at theirs. In this case however I knew where I was going and clearly stated I was going to Tibet Guesthouse, although I didn't know exactly which building that was.

Instead of simply pointing it out for me, they answer evasively on all my questions and instead say something along the lines of why don't I stop at their hotel instead.

Normally I am fairly good and ignoring such people but in this case I was so obsessed with hunting for Gongo that they nearly got the better of me. Especially when I saw that big barrel of I almost set up shop there and as you can see for the next 5 minutes even after getting away, seriously pondered going back to eat at said hotel.

Luckily I came to my senses and both drank and ate at Tibet Guesthouse which was the original plan. My point is when someone already know where they're going I wish they'd simply say sure... that's the hotel you see 3 buildings down there on the right; enjoy!

Tibetan Monk: A Day in the Life of a Tibetan Buddhist Monk

What is the daily life of a Tibetan monk? This is one of the most intriguing aspects when we talk about the Tibetan plateau. Learn more at

In this video, let’s have a glimpse of how a monk’s daily life is like in Tibet, which is shown as we followed a head monk, who lives in the Jhoden monastery, about three hours driving east of Lhasa.

He leads a fairly peaceful and simple life. His daily schedule consists of morning Buddha offering, meditation, praying for the peace and harvest of the villages around his monastery, and night chanting.

You may find they are living a simple and happy life, but it’s not easy. They need to keep pursuing their Buddhist study and praying for the blessings of the Goddess of Mercy.

From the early morning to the late-night, see how he will enjoy the day. We hope you will enjoy the video and let us know what you think below.

( Besides, I think you may be interested in the follow-up video about our monk's daily life, you can watch here: )

An unexpected day in Jagatsukh | Story of a Mumbai girl living in the Himalayas

I headed to Jagatsukh- the ancient capital of Kullu located just 8 km from Manali- to meet my local friend Divya who was going to show me around. But the day had something better planned for me. Divya's house and the conversations that followed about her moving to the mountains many years ago had me fascinated, and if I might add, inspired.

The Himalayan Gay: How is his daily life?How He Deal with Conflict of Being Gay in Buddhist Society?

Tashi Delek!

Today I will show you a fantastic day in Nyingchi with Methok, a gay in Tibet.

Perhaps you may wonder how he lives in such a Buddhist society.

“I think being a kind man and loving each other is much more important.”

I am amazed at how he fights for his own happiness.

He runs a restaurant that serves free breakfast to local students. He regularly visits the street dog shelter to donate food and feed the dogs. That day, he also took me to the house of the elderly he regularly sponsored to bring rice and milk to them.

He is the most beautiful and handsome person in the eyes of his fans and customers. I am touched that he cares about the world around him with love and that his family and friends around him respect and care about him, too.

Running his restaurant and bar and helping as many living beings as he can, he is really a strong-minded person.

I hope he can keep living happily like this and get more love from everyone.
