Hello..Khamzang ena lay... Juley..
It is to say to all my friends that touring without knowing the culture, custom, importance of the places, do's, don'ts, aim and social welfare of the area is just useless. I have cleaned the following Lakes and Passes :-
LAKES:- Seolsar (Near Jalori Pass), Parashar, Dashour, Riwalsor, Nako, Tsomoriri, Tsokar,Surajtal, Chandertal, Deepak tal, Pangong, Dal (Srinagar), Dal (Dharamshala), Dal (Manimahesh), Khajiar etc.

PASSES:- Jalori Pass, Kunzom pass, Rohtang Pass, Baralacha Pass, Tanglangla, Khardungla, Changla, Penzi-La, Fotula, Shin-kun-la etc.

Found clean:- Seolsar, Dashour, Tsomoriri, Tsokar, Surajtal, Deepaktal, Pangong, Baralacha, Tanglangla, Changla, Penzila, Fotula and Shin-kun-la.

Found in bad shape with plastic and garbage:- Riwalsor, Nako, Chandertal, Dal (Dharamshala), Khajiar.Jalori, Rohtang,

Request to all bcmtians to save the Lakes and Passes of Himalayas while touring..

Hello..to all...Khamzang ena lay.. Juley..

While touring with family in summer season, don't go inside the river or even the near to river bed to take photograph or swimming as it is dangerous and you can loss your life by falling in to the river. Here in Kullu-Manali about hundreds of tourists died in recent years and it is the case of every season, so the H.P. Tourism Deptt. has installed a board along Beas River near their Hotel Beas to not to go near Beas river for photography. It is said that many of tourists died their while doing photography but the photography is going on there continuously, they read the board and go for it and don't care for their life and the death by river is still going there. Here is a pic of tourists entered in to the Beas River for Photography and swimming.. But I again say "DON'T DO THIS PLEASE"

Hello to all ..Khamzang ena lay.. Juley..

While traveling in Himalayas you will see the Prayer Flags put by the Buddhist at Highest Passes, Monasteries, Bridges, Trees etc. The Lamas using the woodblocks make images on the flags and purify it by sacred mantras so that the wind from the highest places blow for the betterment of the universe. You will see at the center of the Prayer flag, there is an image of a Wind Horse, and at the corners are four sacred animals i.e. Garuda, Dragon, Tiger and Snow Lion representing the virtues of Wisdom, Power, Confidence and fearless joy respectively. These are called DARCHO or LUNGTA in Ladakhi and Tibetan language. Since these are religious flags and ornament of mountains, one should not touch it by his body for fun etc. It has fixed by ropes for the purpose of worshiping by the travelers at the places and not to touch or to play for fun. So DON'T touch these flags and destroy its purity which is fixed for the betterment of mankind and universe. Here is a pic at Tanglangla a person touching it just for fun or to shoot a photograph instead of worshiping it or making clockwise round around it.

DON'T TOUCH THE PRAYER FLAGS IN HIMALAYAS..
