Tsomgo Lake, also known as Tsongmo Lake or Changu Lake, is a glacial lake in the East Sikkim district of the Indian state of Sikkim, some 40 kilometres from the capital Gangtok. Located at an elevation of 3,753 m (12,313 ft), the lake remains frozen during the winter season.
The lake surface reflects different colours with change of seasons and is held in great reverence by the local Sikkimese people.
Buddhist monks prognosticated after studying the changing colours of the lake.
The roofs in Chinese architecture are not only purely practical, but also mystical. It is believed that the roofs are bent to the top to protect against evil spirits - Buddhists believed that the bends drive away evil spirits in an attack on a house that usually takes the form of a straight line. A distinctive feature of Chinese architecture is a large share of symbolism. It is present in the color of the cornices, and in the choice of roofing materials, and in the top decoration. For example, yellow is a symbol of the emperor, so imperial roofs are usually made gilded or yellow. Roof decorations include dragons with bells, a man riding a chicken, a variety of guardian animals and a carp that brings success. The more important the building, the more such guardians "live" on it.
Quasi un mese dall’ultima volta a Matera e voglio suggerirvi 3 posti che ho provato e sono davvero eccezionali:
ho pernottato all’ @endeasuiterooms, ottima location per dormire sereni al giusto prezzo in un sasso materano, la colazione tra i sassi è veramente suggestiva.
- pranzo al volo da @pasteggiando_the_way_of_pasta, ottima pasta tipica rivisitata in chiave takeaway, da mangiare ammirando uno dei panorami che la città offre
- cena all’ @osteria_materami, con vista mozzafiato, che consiglio vivamente perché oltre ad essere ottima, ha anche un personale cortese a dir poco.
Ogni posto che vi consiglio ha dei prezzi giusti ed è conforme alle tradizioni del luogo, grazie anche a @materasecrets per i consigli.
Salvate o condividete il post se può esservi di aiuto per un vostro viaggio futuro.

But freedom won’t be one of them.
🇬🇧: Wandering in Hong Kong. The other day I was walking around in #tokwawan , a part of urban Hong Kong situated near the old airport area Kai Tak in a result that the surrounding buildings have height restriction. In here, you can see lots of colourful old buildings of Hong Kong. Once upon a time, we are allowed to have different colours. But now, when some colours become a sin, where imagination or different thoughts aren’t allowed, what would be the ending of this colourful building? But remember, they might take down the building or other things, but they can never break our spirit.
Racing the storm clouds along the Cap de Formentor peninsula. We drove up to the highest point and dove out of the car to see the view and capture some snaps before the thunder and lightening began.
We were staying in a tiny former monastery right on the coast line this night, as part of a road trip around Mallorca, and the rain was ~torrential~ all night, lashing against our teeny bedroom window. This island doesn't do anything by halves..!

Beautiful Bowfell on a crisp, crunchy December morning. My footwear choice wasn't the *optimal* choice for summiting in snowfall 🤪
Congratulations to the Boston @redsox for winning their 9th World Series! 🏆

Remembering My Grandmother a year after her passing.
We miss you everyday.
Everything's different without you around.
Love you Ahma.
