To reach a balance , we must have to find proper alignment 🏔 ♎️ A #cairns is a group of stones carefully arranged on top of each other.For centuries, a cairn has been known as a #landmark , #monumental or tombstone that's usually made of #stones . In today's #himalayas mountaineering culture, they are used as #markers to help #hikers stay on course when the trail's route is not obvious. #Rock cairns are a major wayfinding tool for serious rock climbers, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. A network of cairns punctuates the majority of mountains across the world to assist adventurers in their ascent and descent. Such cairns may have ‘beaks’ to point out the shortcuts or correct direction. Sadly, cairns are frequently  becoming more of a hindrance and less of a navigational aid. Somewhere along the way, their age-old purpose has been misconstrued and abused. This is partly due to inexperienced #climbers building stone stacks along various routes without knowing their exact #wayfinding meaning. Some even deface existing ancient cairns to construct a new uninformed version. Displaced cairns can cause even advanced adventurers to lose the way or take a wrong turn. #himanchaltourism #himalayasarecalling #traveldiary #biketrips #incredibleindia #history #savetheplanet #peaceofmind
