Majestic Mountains

Annapurna Massif, Nepal, looking at Annapurna I peak, 8,091 meters (26,545 feet) high. The photo was taken near the ancient Tibetan village of Phu near the Nepal-Tibet border. That is a Mani stone wall; each stone has a hand-carved Tibetan prayer. The particular village is now a ghost town used only by traveling yak herders and trekkers. The town was wiped out around 1918 by what we now believe was the Spanish flu pandemic. The few survivors thought the village was cursed, so no one ever moved back.
