With the upcoming holiday season in mind, Indiahikes is hosting an Instagram Contest. Titled #IHTimelapse, this contest is for all those who love revisiting tiny bits of their treks through timelapses! We can’t wait to see all the floating clouds, shimmering rivers, swaying trees and stock-still mountains. Show us your best timelapses using the hashtag #IHTimelapse.
