Green Rice Fields in western Nepal
While doing field work in far western Nepal, I enjoy watching the pre-monsoon rice field planting and flooding. Farmers till the fields then build complex rock walls to divert water from streams and rivers to irrigate the crops. As the rice sprouts, vibrant greens begin to cover the valleys and hillsides. While we stopped to fix a flat tire, I took a few panoramas of the nearby fields.
