So while there is some cultural similarity between the peoples living in this region, there are also lots of fascinating differences.
These beautiful portraits, spanning from west to east in the Himalayas, show what a culturally and ethnically diverse region the Himalayas are, with rich diversity in traditions, clothing and lifestyle.
