Tiger family feasting at night in Indian central jungle [01:26]
The tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest cat species, reaching a total body length of up to 3.3 metres (11 ft) and weighing up to 306 kg (670 lb). It is the third largest land carnivore (behind only the Polar bear and the Brown bear). Its most recognizable feature is a pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with lighter underside. It has exceptionally stout teeth, and the canines are the longest among living felids with a crown height of as much as 74.5 mm (2.93 in) or even 90 mm (3.5 in). In zoos, tigers have lived for 20 to 26 years, which also seems to be their longevity in the wild. They are territorial and generally solitary but social animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their prey requirements. This, coupled with the fact that they are indigenous to some of the more densely populated places on Earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans. Tigers are among the most recognisable and popular of the world's charismatic megafauna. They have featured prominently in ancient mythology and folklore, and continue to be depicted in modern films and literature. Tigers appear on many flags, coats of arms, and as mascots for sporting teams. The Bengal tiger is the national animal of Bangladesh and India. The Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris), also called the Indian tiger, lives in India, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh, and is the most common subspecies with populations estimated at less than 2500 adult individuals.

Highest bridge in the world? Indian military trucks crossing it! [01:16]
Military trucks crossing the Rang rang bridge in Sikkim. See the bridge sway sideways and vertically when the 3 and 5 tonne trucks cross over! This is said to be one of the highest bridges in the world, and definitely in the Himalaya! Looking down to the river almost a half kilometer below, one gets disoriented and dizzy, if one can even see the river for it is often shrouded in mist and cloud-cover! The other tall bridge in the Himalaya is over the Jadh Ganga river near Gangotri. Orchids on a road-side tree and views of one of the highest bridges in the world - the Rang Rang khola bridge en route Mangan in central north Sikkim, India. This is the second highest suspension bridge in Asia - a true engineering marvel in the high and remote Himalaya! Sikkim is a landlocked Indian state located in the Himalayan mountains. The state borders Nepal to the west, China's Tibet Autonomous Region to the north and east, and Bhutan to the southeast. The Indian state of West Bengal lies to the south. With around 607000 inhabitants as of 2011, Sikkim is the least populous state in India and the second-smallest state after Goa in total area, covering approximately 7096 km2 (2740 sq mi). Sikkim is nonetheless geographically diverse due to its location in the Himalayas; the climate ranges from subtropical to high alpine, and Kangchenjunga, the world's third-highest peak, is located on Sikkim's border with Nepal. Sikkim is a popular tourist destination, owing to its culture, scenery and ...

Kanchenjunga from 35, 000 feet in the air! [01:05]
Kathmandu to Paro flight, from Nepal to Bhutan, flying east along and across the Himalaya. One can see Mt. Kanchenjunga from the window of the plane - a clear view is to be had, of India's highest mountain which lies in the state of Sikkim, India. A rare sight indeed! Air transport is all important to Nepal (since it is a landlocked country) and has been largely developed since 1953, first by the Indian Air Lines, and subsequently in 1959 by the Royal Nepal Airlines Corporation (RNAC) with internal services starting with Kathmandu as the hub linking with many towns and cities within Nepal. Gradually, it spread to Indian and other international destinations. Now, Nepal boasts of 44 airports throughout the country. The main international airport serving Kathmandu and indeed Nepal is the Tribhuvan International Airport, located about six kilometres from the city center in the Kathmandu valley. Operated by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal it has two terminals, one domestic and one international. At present, about 22 international airlines connect Nepal to various other destinations in Asia and the Middle East, connected to cities such as Delhi, Kolkata, Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Dhaka, Islamabad, Karachi, Paro, Lhasa, Chengdu and Guangzhou.
