The year was 2007. Our trip was to explore villages deep in the mountains,
pristine lakes, rivers flowing fast through the mountains in mind. We forgot
nuances of photography in these exotic location, we took enough time in all
the locations to let the experience sink in, and come back enriched with tales
of a terrain that is much isolated from the modern world.
One of the still unexplored and insanely beautiful stretch of the Indian Himalayas,
Spiti is a valley of stark landscapes and high snowy peaks stretching to the sky.
Gurgling rivers and crystal clear lakes dot the highlands of Lahaul, while an ancient civilization has survived for nearly a thousand years and has preserved its culture
against the onslaught of modernity in Spiti.,.
Short and easy walks,
Deep in the Himalayas
Rivers flowing fast.
Gurgling rivers pristine lakes
Its culture preserved
