18-01-2017, 1400 hours, Kaza, Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India:
We’ve come out around 1 km from Kaza, in the direction of the Ki Monastery, to get a view of the village from a distance. There is about 2-3 inches snow on the road, but we are able to easily make our way on it. As we check out the spectacular views around the valley, we’ve started feeling the cold winds blowing down the mountain tops. Though it has not started to snow in the village, the nearby mountains have now started to disappear in the fog (which means it has started snowing there). It will be not long before snow starts here also, as the temperature has started dropping. Time to head back to the warmth of our home stay.
