The Wanga Valley in the Himalayan foothills was popular with colonial officials and travellers because it ideally suited their Victorian taste for the romantic pastoral. It was chosen for its pleasant climate and spectacular views of forests of pines, firs and cedars and rows of snow capped peaks disappearing in the distance. These picturesque images represent some of photographer Samuel Bourne’s best work.
