Against the popular 'urban' view, Mahatma Gandhi's vision for the country still holds true. The real culture and sustainable communities reside in the villages of India and will decide it's future.

Remembering the father of the nation on his birthday. HAPPY GANDHI JAYANTI!

The 3 story tall Shakyamuni Buddha statue at Shey Palace in Ladakh. The statue was built in 17th century by artisans who came from Nepal when invited by his highness, Deldan Namgyal. These expert copper artisans settled in the nearby village and continued their handicraft work which then became an integral part of Ladakh's culture. This copper art is still practiced in few villages, by the generations of artisans living here since centuries.

The water scarcity in Shimla is a testimony to the damage done unsustainable tourism practices. It's a wake-up call for the tourist destinations across the mountains to adopt right policies and practices to preserve the destinations for all generations. https://www.deccanherald.com/opinion/perspective/shift-focus-sustainable-690788.html

Our guest Samran came with his group of 6 friends and stayed at our village Tsogsty. He summarizes his experience as below:

We were then arranged to live at Tsogsti Apricot Village. The place overlooks the Zanskar River and valley and is very close to the confluence. When we reached there we, we couldn't believe where we were. This green patch in the middle of the mountains in a desert. It was heaven on earth. 6 of us were divided into 3 homes and each host was so loving and hospitable. Might I add it does get pretty warm in the rooms so we all decided to take our mattresses up on the terrace and sleep there. Which was the best ever idea once the lights were out. We saw all the stars we can possibly see without light pollution and many shooting stars and the Milky Way Galaxy very faintly if I may add. The food was simple but made with love so it was naturally delicious. We had the chance to eat lots of apricots which were freshly plucked. We did a bit of archery which was fun. Everything about the village was eco-friendly and Mountain Homestay have done a great job with this place. A must stay for anyone visiting Ladakh.

Reducing poverty and improving the environment for the mountain people is must for their sustainable future and for the planet. They are the protectors of the fragile #environment and ecosystems on which the entire planet is dependent, be it for clean water or stable weather patterns.

It's time everyone should sensitize with the #mountain people who have been marginalized and kept in isolation. Working in line with #UNSDGs, we at Mountain Homestays are working passionately, every single day, creating opportunities for these #communities and ensure these protectors have a prosperous future.

When you travel with us, you help us in our vision to improve the lives of the mountain people and ensure a #sustainable #future for them. And for the #planet.
