Himopedia - The Digital Himalayan Cyclopedia
Himalayan Cyclopedia is my endeavour to make 'well researched correct data' easily available to the people seeking information about the mighty and the vast Himalayas. I am of the belief that knowledge is the best friend of a human being and is in fact a life support system for excelling in everything we do. My endeavour with the Himalayan Cyclopedia is to share knowledge about the Himalayas, its geographical elements, mythology and anthropology. It's my continuous effort to digitize everything I know about the Himalayas or the facts that I collect by reading books, researching or travelling in the Himalayas.
The Himalayan Cyclopedia is a flexible database-driven web application and it is possible to extend it to any other relevant information which is currently not under this umbrella. For all the data displayed on this website, it took me a lot of effort to firstly source the information and then digitize that information to make it usable for everyone who loves the Himalayas or needs it for their upcoming travel in the Himalayas. I am constantly developing the system and the future will see Himalayan Cyclopedia grow as big as the Himalayas itself. I understand it will take me a massive effort to do it and that the teachings of the Himalayas will help me achieve our goal. If you have any idea to improve it or want to collaborate with me to contribute to this platform, I am just an email away! Currently, I developed the website, maintain its servers and have been contributing data to it since 2015.
