Welcome to the photogallery of my travels.

You can see pictures of plants and country - landscapes and plant environment. Plants are shown in community, in details and variations.

There are mainly pictures from NW China and Tibet, Central Asia, Pamir, Far East and S America.

Central Asia: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Xinjiang province, pictures refer to the mountains: Tian Shan (Trans Illy, Kiungei, Tersky, Kyrgyz, Ketmen and Kunlun including its transition to Karakoram. The climate is very continental and dry, because the mountais surround large Tarim basin/deserts, especially Kunlun and Ketmen. The flora of E Tian Shan and especially Kunlun is less rich in species number, but it comprise many unusual endemics and area restricted spp, many of them are not in cultivation.

NW China - Sechuan, Yunnan. Monsoon climate varies from very wet rainfall catchment in Balang Shan, Yulong Shan, Zheduo Shan to drier toward Tibetan border in the west - Yidun, Haizi Shan, Chola Shan, Baimashan, Da Xue Shan. There is tremendous botanical richness.

Tibet /Xizang Province. Pictures are presented from SE part, between Lhasa and Rawu and from the base camp of Mt, Everest.. While Lhasa region and westwards to Everest is quite dry and continental, the area of Bome/Pomi and Galung La get a lot of rainfall along Brahmaputra River valley. The Rawu area is a bit drier than NW Yunnan, hidden behind mountain ridge of Hengduan Shan from prevailing monsoon from SE.

The Far East - Sakhalin and Kamchatka. The Far East climate is affected by high rainfall from Pacific ocean. The snow cover is often mohe than 2 m. Low temperatures -30 to -40°C do not affect plants under such snow cover. Lowland is often covered with tall-forb vegetation with ways made by bears hunting salmons. Slopes are coverd by bamboo in the south or forests (Larix spp., Abies sachalinensis and mixed). Large bogs with Ledums and Chamaedaphne calyculata are common along the whole island. Low-herb flora is rather on rocky ground. Kamchatka climate is colder, forest ends inthe middle of peninsula and is replaced with arctic tundra. The flora has a mixture of Siberian, far East and American species. The floristic composition Sachalin is between Kamchatka and Japan.
