All across the Himalayan region we encounter giant pairs of eyes staring out from atop Buddhist Stupas (you can see some in the photos on our website).
We see the Buddha’s eyes not only on stupas but also on prayer stones piled into cairns on mountain summits, at auspicious places and holy sites, crossroads where travellers pass, the list goes on.
It is a striking sight and becomes an inseparable part of any Himalayan memories.
The eyes look out in the four directions symbolising the omniscience of a Buddha and reminding us to have compassion towards all and to be vigilant in staying on the true path.
What’s our true path? To have a brilliant time showing you a brilliant time, giving back to community and environment while doing it!
