Spiti Landscape

Barren landscape near Morang Monastery in Spiti.

The road towards Losar from Kaza is a desolate landscape with rocky terrain and little habitation. The landscape mostly comprises of narrow ravines and steep mountainside. However in some places the canvas of nature opens up in wide bottom valleys, presenting a larger than life view.

Leaving Kaza early meant that I only had myself for company all the way till Losar. Only two vehicles passed me on the way. While the road was good only in a few patches, the scenery more than made up for it.  Borrowing from the pages of L’Amour, “Ahh! the eternal bliss of watching the creation of world best artist on the trail while your steed grazes nonchalantly”.

Technical details: Olympus E-M10ii + 14-42mm,  F/4.6, 1/800s, ISO200
