Water gushing out after hitting a shaft of a grinder in a water-mill, Nepal

Size: 675×1024

On the trail between Ghorepaani and Taatopaani, Nepal, water splashes out from under the grinder of a water mill. The mill house has a bamboo roof and bamboo walls.

Water grinders, or Panni Ghatta, are an important innovation in mountain technology in Nepal. Water from nearby streams and rivers is channeled and directed into a shaft lying below the grinder which propels the grinders into motion.
