The Himalayas are a huge 45 million-year-old mountain range that stretches over 2,400 km and is renowned for its remarkable diversity, remoteness, and spiritual practices. These mountains offer an insight into the past with their stunning scenery and continuing traditional lifestyle practiced by people for centuries.  They also serve a vital function as the primary origin of freshwater for 10 significant Asian rivers, supporting the livelihoods of more than 1.3 billion people. The region’s varied elevations, ranging from lowlands with a tropical climate to high peaks, support a wide range of life.

Featuring:

  • Ancient forests: A wide range of habitats and different times of the day, including endemic bird species such as Monal bird.
  • Alpine meadows: Mountainous openings that provide habitats for numerous bird species, and occasionally serve as grazing grounds for shepherds’ cows and sheep.
  • Water: Freshwater creeks gently flowing from the high-altitude lakes and mountain peaks with melting snow and glaciers.
  • Wind: Rushing distant wind over the mountain peaks and treetops of ancient trees.
  • Snow: A collection of distinct sounds produced by descending snowflakes during a snowfall at an elevation of 3200 meters.
  • Raw quality: Soundtracks are uncut, kept in the raw yet quality sound, and edited with minimal basic EQ. Compiled for sound designers, filmmakers, bioacoustic researchers, or other nature enthusiasts.
