I’m not entirely sure if this structure may be called a stupa, nor do i know the names of those nice pinky flowers. what i do know that langtang valley makes an impression. not only because of those traditional buddhist structures who fit the landscape so perfectly. not only because of the mighty himalayas. the scale of disastrous 2015 earthquake is so visible here. whole village of old langtang just disappeared user hundreds of thousands of rocks and snow an you walk over it, not even noticing if you don’t pay attention. the regions needs tourists to come back to recover from the trauma.
Only been back in france for a week, but already i'm learning a lot about the habitat and wildlife here. i'm finding this same male roe deer feeding along certain roads and farm fields on most mornings. they're very territorial and this buck is likely setting-up and defending a territory before the rutting period begins next month.
