Photo by Prasenjeet Yadav @prasen.yadav | A villager in northern India's Spiti Valley brings his yak home from open pasture. The yak is a domesticated bovid with a long, furry coat that helps it live in the high and cold mountains of Asia. For a major part of the year, they are free-ranging, but just after winter they’re secured and brought back to the villages to support farming. As summer approaches, they shed their downy undercoats, which are combed out by locals and processed into a soft fiber resembling cashmere. This animal holds a special place in local communities and plays a crucial role in helping inhabitants survive in harsh conditions. Yaks are well adapted to high altitudes, with slightly larger hearts and lungs than cattle found at lower altitudes, as well as a greater capacity for transporting oxygen through their blood (a typical high-altitude adaptation). Follow me @prasen.yadav for more photos from India and Central Asia.

Photo by @mattborowick | From a bird’s-eye view this may look like abstract art, but in reality we’re looking down at four icebergs lined up almost perfectly. Each of these icebergs is the size of a two-story house, if not larger. They share the frame with the Red Island in the interior of Scoresby Sound in eastern Greenland. This image was created during a licensed drone flight and was taken in accordance with local regulations. Please follow for more pictures like these at @mattborowick. #iceberg #greenland #nature #explore #adventure

Photo by @francescolastrucci | In the heart of the dense forests of Cambodia’s Cardamom Mountains, the wildlife release station in Koh Kong hosts this beautiful wreathed hornbill, fully recovered and ready to be released back into the wild. The Cardamoms were once a stronghold for Khmer Rouge fighters, a no-man's-land from which, until recently, outsiders were banned. Decades of isolation and inaccessibility kept this environment and its biodiversity nearly untouched, until loggers and poachers found their way into its forests. The ecosystem rapidly came to a critical point, but recently a few environmental organizations and a handful of locals have put their efforts together to save one of the longest remaining stretches of untouched rainforest in Southeast Asia and its biodiversity. The most evident of the area’s conservation successes stands in Chi Phat, a community of 500 families at the center of the Cardamoms, where the men who once fought the rebels now welcome and host intrepid travelers, while former poachers and loggers have now switched sides to work with the rangers. Soeun, the man who found and healed the injured hornbill, assures me that there is still hope for this lush rainforest to be preserved.

Photos by Jeff Mauritzen @jeffmauritzen | Words by @jkglobaltext. Under the fluid light of Atlantic skies, the islands off Ireland’s west coast are rugged, romantic realms caught between myth and reality. Small wonder these windswept outposts have drawn filmmakers for decades. The Banshees of Inisherin is the latest film to tap the atmospheric magic of Ireland’s western shores. The setting for Martin McDonagh’s fable is a fictional Atlantic island whose name translates as “the island of Ireland.” McDonagh’s movie was shot on the Aran Islands, off Galway, and on Achill Island, further north. For visitors, both locations are well worth the effort to reach their remote shores. Seen from above, Aran appears as a latticework of stone walls thrown over rough fields like a crocheted cloak. No trees grow on these barren limestone shards stretching out into the Atlantic. These three “stepping stones to America” hold only shallow fields, fertilized over time with seaweed. Step off the boat and you’ll hike around the same patchwork of stonewall-lined fields as the characters in Banshees. Wherever you roam, the wondrous western light prevails. Cinematographer Cian de Buitléar, whose company supplied lighting equipment for Banshees, also filmed Islandman (2003) around Aran. “On the Atlantic Irish seaboard the weather changes so fast—it’s said you might see four seasons in a day here,” he observes. What is truly unique about the west, says the filmmaker, is its crisper, brighter quality of light than elsewhere. “This is because the Atlantic winds allow no build-up of heat haze,” he says. “So even filming on Aran, sometimes you have crystal clear views 70 miles south to Kerry.” To read more stories from Ireland on this St. Patrick’s Day, explore the new National Geographic book "Always Ireland” by Jack Kavanagh. #StPatricksDay

Photo by @nicholesobecki | Sand is a master shapeshifter, but I had never seen it settle into anything quite like these frozen desert waves. The sculptural monoliths of Abu Dhabi’s fossil dunes date to somewhere between 200,000 and 7,000 years ago. Over a vast period of time, the wind carved them into their fantastic current shapes, though erosion will eventually wear them back down to more subdued forms. | Abu Dhabi welcomes you. It is a cultural destination that embraces creativity and exchange, inspiring your curiosity. @visitabudhabi and connect with what matters to you. #InAbuDhabi
