The Wider Image: Tradition and tourism in the Indian Himalayas
Villagers nestled high in the Indian Himalayas are grappling with lifestyle changes in the world's fastest-growing major economy that are eroding their age-old Buddhist culture but opening up new opportunities. People have long wrested a living from herding goats and tending wheat fields ringed by 6,000-m (19,685-ft) snow-capped peaks, while Buddhist monasteries dotting the landscape are a reminder of the region's ties to its eastern neighbour, Tibet. Traditions are fading fast as larger numbers of India's burgeoning middle class flock to holiday in the tranquillity of the lunar-like terrain.

Tour guide Hans-Juergen Haite leads the way through a Federal reserve bank (Bundesbank) bunker prior to the bunker's official opening to the public in Cochem, Germany, March 18, 2016. West Germany's Central Bank (Deutsche Bundesbank) stored some 20 billion German marks of emergency notes in two underground bunkers, one in Frankfurt the other in Cochem, between 1964-1988 during the cold war. The bunker in Cochem, in a quaint residential area, with the entrance disguised over a normal house lies thirty meters (100 feet) under the house with an impregnable concrete bunker of 8,700 square meters (93,000 square feet) containing 300 meters (1000 feet) of tunnels. The bunker could generate its own energy, and in case of a nuclear war it could shelter 175 people for 14 days. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

While other parts of Pakistan and northern India were flooded, Concordia in the Karakoram mountain range was covered with a seasonally unusual amount of snow. Geographically, Pakistan is a climbers paradise. It rivals Nepal for the number of peaks over 7,000 meters and is home to the world's second tallest mountain, K2, as well as four of the world's 14 summits higher than 8,000 meters. In more peaceful times, northern Pakistan's unspoilt beauty was a major tourist draw but the potentially lucrative industry has been blighted by years of violence. The number of expeditions has dwindled, wrecking communities dependant on climbing for income and starving Pakistan's suffering economy of much-needed dollars. Picture taken September 6, 2014.

A tour group listens to tour guide Joe Ditzler discuss Amish women's clothing at the Amish Experience, a tourism destination in the village of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania August 9, 2014. It's that Old World charm of the Amish that draws 8 million tourists - and $1.9 billion - each year to Pennsylvania's Lancaster County, home of the nation's largest Amish community of 31,000. What the Amish don't do, supporters say, is tote rifles as part of a violent protection racket - as depicted in the television show "Amish Mafia" - or regularly defy their religion, like in "Breaking Amish" and "Breaking Amish: Brave New World." And, Amish horror stories are not the norm, despite the plot lines of the upcoming "Amish Haunting." Filmmaker Mary Haverstick is leading a push to eject the shows, airing on the Discovery Channel and related networks, from Lancaster County. The movement is gathering support because of what some see as a demeaning, inaccurate portrayal of the gentle, devout group. But some wonder if the hard-edged reality TV approach is that different from the soft exploitation of the Amish by the local tourism industry. In both, the Amish are unpaid, costumed "extras."

Tourism contributed over 5 percent of Spain's economy or GDP in 2012 and provided around 900,000 jobs, according to Euromonitor, in a country where one in four is out of work, meaning a boost to tourist figures should be good news as other sectors flag.

Mobile guides ride Segway "chariots" before a presentation at city hall in Rome
Mobile guides ride Segway "chariots" before a presentation at city hall in Rome November 6, 2009. Currently in the city a common complaint from the hundreds of thousands of tourists who look over the ancient Roman ruins every month is that the information available for the sites just isn't good enough. Despite the use of guide books visitors are seen trawling through literature trying to find out where they are or what bus they can find to the next destination. But now about 60 mobile tourist guides will be in permanent service around Rome's main tourist spots, trying to help visitors to make their way thorough the Italian capital.
