A woman milling corn flour

On the trail between Ghorepaani and Taatopaani, Nepal, a woman sits in front of a water mill. Grain is poured into the top of the mill and ground at the bottom between the stone disks. These mills are run by directing a volume of water on a shaft which propels the grinder into motion. The water is brought from nearby stream and rivers.
