The roads in Himachal that take one to Spiti and beyond can make the heart clutch with fear and excitement. This overhanging mountain through which a road was blasted, makes one duck ones head automatically!
Driving there is an amazing experience indeed and one has new respect for the Border Roads Organisation (BRO), that create and maintain these roads 🙂
Our curiosity to know
What lies beyond the curve
of the road
Is both, our greatest strength
And our biggest weakness…
The homes in the hills are the epitome of simplicity and the flowers that grow around them are audacious in their beauty. The flowers relieve some of the severity of the landscape with their color and profusion, always a very welcome sight when travelling to a place like Spiti 🙂
No matter how tough life is for the people living in the hills of Himachal Pradesh, most homes manage to keep flowering pots by the windows…adding beauty to an inhospitable terrain.
Clicked this in Spiti Valley. We had gone to a small village for a home stay and this cute little girl was rushing to see if she could assist us with our luggage 🙂
The simplicity and spirituality of the hill people reflects in their gentleness and their smile. Against all odds and in the toughest of terrains they survive….So much to be learned from them!
