Mountains | Valleys

Mountains are the repository of both cultural and natural heritage, even though this is a somewhat artificial separation between nature and culture. They provide livelihoods for  thousands of people around the world, and are significant in the protection of ecosystems. The Himalayas – the ‘third pole’ – are currently hotspots in terms of the impacts of climate change, geo-political tensions and the maintenance of these livelihood rights. National parks with their conservation aims, and tourism through trekking and spiritual journeys all speak of these tensions.
