The monk who Instagrams is a monk you should definitely follow. Tibetan monk, Gedun Wangchuk who lives in Tibet, uses an iPhone, and has killer photography skills, is our current flavour of the month.

In a world where tailored lives rule the roost, this account is perfection. His home, approximately 16,000 feet above sea level, is nestled in the lap of snow-capped peaks, and boasts of clear blue skies - the like of which Delhi's long forgotten - crystal clear lakes, gorgeous gompas, and happy smiles.Monk Gedun, or InstaMonk as we think he should be called, is THE account to follow. But if you're still not convinced, there are 10 pictures that tell you just why. And please, don't forget to retrieve your jaws off the floor. #kthnxbye
