The Suez Canal

Happy to be among the winners at LifeFramer contest "The face of the Earth" ! 🎉 And what great feedback! “This is an effective juxtaposition – the huge cargo liner partially obscured by a barren dune-scape, the bright colors and logos of the shipping containers at odds with the brown sand. The world represented at its most simple and complex in a single frame. I think of these huge vessels drawing lines across the face of the earth, travelling almost incomprehensible distances to deliver goods around the world. Camille contemplates that enormity in a playful and unusual way.” –

3/3 What's behind?

Pakistan

2/3 Leading up to 6050m high You want to join? Check my adventure tours. ※ story ※ 3.50 am. We started a quick walk through the high pasture, then, altitude rose abruptly and a snowfield accompanied us for the last hour. And finally we reached the top. I was overwhelmed, a lot of emotions I didn't expect. I shed a tear when I made out the +6000 meter high peak. It would have been impossible for me (and dangerously stupid) to attempt such summit alone, even though it is not a technical climb. Despite the harshness of the ascension for both of us, my guide encouraged me and took me to the top. I have never given so much energy for 9h non-stop.  With this picture, I wanted to give tribute to guides, porters and leader climbers who are dedicated and passionate and make such climbs possible.

Repost @studiohanslucas ・・・ © Camille Delbos | Hans Lucas @camille_delbos ___ Curated by @kalelkoven ___ The Last Wakhi Shepherdesses // Yak riders are returning quickly to the summer village for Woolio. This once in the year faith-based festival celebrates yaks, the emblematic animals of the Pamir. It is one of the very few entertainment opportunities for the local people each year. ___

Check my last story featured on @aljazeeraenglish ・・・ @camille_delbos & @StudioHansLucas for Al Jazeera English ••• Nestled in the Karakorum Range in northern Pakistan, the remote Shimshal Valley adapts each year to the conditions of the mountains, with women leading the seasonal movement of both the people with their livestock. In springtime, a handful of women and a few men settle an at an altitude of over 4,600 metres. They spend five months in harsh, isolated conditions, with only basic comforts and a three-day walk to the nearest village. Despite the weather conditions, sheep and goats are milked in the same pen every day. Shepherdesses have to work quickly before the night falls and the severe cold arrives. Only a tiny coloured string run through the animal's ear enables one to differentiate them. The shepherdesses of Pamir are conscious of living the last years of a beautifully harsh tradition; of being the custodians of a fading ancestral knowledge.

Get on board in my IG stories in Pakistan, it's almost the end! -- Another gem hidden in Pakistan is the Chaukhandi tombs build during Mughal era (15th and 18th centuries). They are amazingly elaborate sandstone carvings situated attributed to Jokhio style but Balouch tribe was also burried there. It's was not very well indicated so it's not very easy to find. It's located not far from Karachi, Tatha direction.

Get on board in my IG stories in Pakistan, it's already the second week! -- from Migli Sar, a 6000+ metre high peak above the high altitude meadow of Shimshal where lakes sparkle on the Central Asian watershed.

Get on board in my IG stories in Pakistan, it's already the second week! -- Pakistan is scattered with forgotten treasures. When you push a door, you never know what to expect. I entered this mosque located off the main road in Thatta's picturesque old town, somehow convinced that it's probably "just another nice mosque". The first steps took my breath away. This masterpiece was built by Shah Jahan, the Mughal Emperor behind the Taj Mahal.

It looks like you enjoy Pakistan, you'r right it's a wonderful country. Get on board on my IG journey or join my next tour (bio). -- Garam Chashma which means "Hot Spring" is one of the highest human settlements in the Hindu Kush ranges next to Badakhshan. On assignment with an anthropologist, we spent time working hardly on his project and had the chance to meet this beaming lady leaving in modest conditions. We were very moved by her way of life and what she shared with us. For the one who will ask: yes, I voluntarily choose to share with you her faceless picture because it could be the story of anyone I cross since I'm doing this job.

! Get on board on my journey in Pakistan! -- For Woolio, a local meal called “chamurk” is prepared out of shreds of slim wheat bread mixed with yak butter. The custom is to drink rock-salted milk tea to warm oneself up. Recently, refined sugar tends to replace it.                           

Come on, it's still time ! Get on board on my journey in Pakistan -- End of March, in the heart of Hunza valley, clouds choke high peaks, and sink down to Karimabad village swallowing flowery orchards on its way. Winter fights with spring. And my rendez-vous with blossoming looks as if it has been comprised. But moody weather brings us sometimes in a soft still life.

Pakistan

Get on board on my journey in Pakistan! -- If you takes time Pakistan reveals you it's architectural jewels. This craftly blue glazed tile decorate Bibi Jawindi Tomb, built in the 15th century, is one of the five monuments in Uch Sharif. Unfortunately only half of the structure remains today and this the tomb is on the tentative list of the Unesco World Heritage Sites.

Pakistan

The next days I'll take you to Pakistan. Get on board and follow this journey. -- On assignment with an anthropologist, after a very long and tough ride, we ended up in a small remote valley of Chitral district. The badakhshi tribe living there use a specific language and have a very modest way of life. But it looks this traditionally wrapped baby is looking at us: what is he asking? Maybe he just never saw someone with that fair skin like me. For illness resistance, the people there believe it's better not to wash the baby.

Kyrgyzstan

This is our last day in this journey in Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia. It look you enjoyed it, then I'll keep going to bring you to other places, stay tuned for the next series. -- A kirghiz shepherd and his horse us to his encampment before Teleti Pass (3800m). The landscape is stunning, the air pure, and the silence reign.

Kyrgyzstan

The next days I'll take you to Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia. Get on board and follow this journey. -- Kyrgyz playing (‘pulling of the goat’) in the jailoo (pastures). The players try to place a (dead) goat or calf carcass in a goal. This is a Central Asian sport with many variants. It's not a very gentle game and beware not to be on the way when they come in your direction, move quickly because they won't stop.
