Sikkim is a paradise, with its beautiful snow laden mountains and the yak dotting the ice laden surface. The stiff high cliffs rises from no where to reach the sky.The Yak is what cow is in the plains, respected and revered. Yak cheese and its better fatty acid profile are well known.

Uttarpradesh photos

UP is a large and highly populated state teeming with life. The state has a number of fast emerging cities.

They are also the hub of activity, always enriching us with momentum.

Chuksm bridge Arunachal

Chuksm bridge in Arunachal Pradesh, India

The story goes that even a shell couldn't destroy it....This lovely bridge sways like a swing if many people get into it. Parallel to it is a steel bridge.
