Happy #worldLionday. I took this photo back in 2013 in Masai Mara. Lions are our pride and they need to be protected. With less than 25,000 left in the wild, Lions are listed as vulnerable to extinction. Did you know that lions numbers have dropped by half since the first Lion King movie which premiered in 1994. . . . #africa #masaimara #internationalcatday #potd #sundaybest #lions #lionking #wildlife #wildanimals #wildcats #projectCat @wcsnewsroom @wwf @africanwildlifefoundation
Did you know that close to 1.4 billion people depend on glacier fed rivers and springs of Himalayas for water! . Melting of ice has always been a process in any glacial region but due to rise in temperature this process is getting faster than its supposed to be, which will have catastrophic impact for climbers and people living below of Khumbu glacier. Being a photographer I wanted to see the icefall during the day. As most people prefer to climb at night which is relatively safe but in my case I started late so that I could see lights coming through the icefall. When the light hits the icebergs we could hear ice crackle and even the crampons could not perform well as all ice turns soft and watery which makes it difficult to walk. In picture: Guru Jen Jen Bhote, who was assisting my climb was also assigned to collect trash onwards basecamp. #Khumbuglacier #Glacier #nepal #mounteverest #intothenature #life #water #extremephotography #outdooradventures #everestsummiter #myght #visitnepal2020 @visitnpl_2020 @natgeoexpeditions #expeditions
🔊🔊 on!. Kestrels are masters of stationary flight, and hover-hunt extensively. They also hunt from perches, altering their hunting method to suit prey type, weather conditions and energy requirements.  I got to film this beauty while on assignment for @wwf on Snow leopards in Kanchenjunga! A weekend treat for all! Happy Friday! 👏 Original score: @binayakshah73 . . . #birdsofinstagram #birdsonearth #kestrel #mountainbirds #videooftheday #instatravel #beautifulbirds #nature #kanchenjunga #Nepal @nepalwwf @birdsonearth #natgeotravel #visitnepal2020 @visitnpl_2020 #myGHT
This May 2019, I was on the crew as photographer and filmmaker for @bally Everest Cleaning Campaign, where the crew successfully cleaned about 2 tonnes of trash from above base camp of Mt. Everest. Here in picture- The Sherpas crew extracting abandoned tents, and other trash from Camp 4 South Col at altitude of 26,300 ft. It took us about 10 hours for the final ascent to Summit of Everest and 7 hours for the descend to South col Camp 4. . . #mountains #topoftheworld #everest2019 #pollutioninthemountains #everestcleaningcampaign #ballypeakoutlook #ballyshoes #clikman #samirjungthapa #filmmaker #adventurephotography #highaltitudephotography #sherpas
