Asia Grace


Foothills, Nepal

The hills of the Himalayas are cut with narrow terraces. Some of these may only be 5 to 6 feet (2m) in width. Traditional crops for this slopes are barley, oats, and sometimes some wheat. The hut is a day-use shelter, not a proper homestead. These terraces require tremendous upkeep against erosion and gravity.
