One of the greatest adventure you can possibly have in a lifetime is trekking in the Himalayas. Walk at the feet of these majestic giants with snow covered peaks, pass by mystical temples, walk on ancient trails, experience the culture and the daily life of the hill tribes and breath in the most amazing nature and scenery that you have ever seen. For many people it remains just a dream, sadly. - #Himalayas #Trekking @lonelyplanet
Betula utilis var. jacquemontii - Sought after for their white bark, the colour of which develops fully when the tree is around 8 years old, and their dark green leaves that turn butter-yellow in autumn, this elegant tree will also produce yellowy brown catkins in spring. These trees have been cut back when young to create three separate stems.
