Haha very good, just its not drugs for guns here, its rescue flights for cash

Savoia, thank you for your nice comments. And I totally agree with you about VF pics. That village with no name is quite intriguing, what a remote and wild place to live in. Winter must be quite of an experience up there .

Hmmmm yes, winter will bring Heli-Skiing & Mountaineering pax & sling dropped cargo up to their base camps plus rescues when they get in trouble.

Local folk rescues are always on going as most villages are 7 to 12 walking days out to a road? So if it ain't Heli-medevac to a hospital within a few hours You die. :uhoh:

I'm sure I speak for many. Amazing pictures VF.:ok:

I must also add that my little lily white bottom tweaked a little when I seen the Helivfr picture. :}

being a farmer of sorts, what cultivars do they grow? I guess it be some sorts of cereals, but very impressive the scale of that production as must be the simple?? logistics of transporting the product to markets. how long is their growing season?

thanks again for the journey

Namaste, Nepal farms most things but yes cereals are the highest produce as most people mainly eat rice. Fruit & vegetables are also grown on large scale. Not much transport required from the mountains as it is all stored & consumed within the local villages. Season higher in the mountains is about 6 months, below 6,000' all year round. There use of channeled spring water is amazing to be hold. :ok: Any fertile land is step cut & farmed, literally every inch of farm-able land is being cultivated. :D
