19-01-2017, 1430 hours, Kibber village, Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India:
The drive to Kibber village was uphill with snow accumulated on the road on corners which were in shadow areas. With luck we were also able to spot a pair of Bharal (Himalayan Blue Sheep) on a snow covered hill side looking at the valley below. Upon reaching Kibber, we got down and were instantly spellbound by the views of the village and the mountains beyond it. In the distance, on a hill side, another village called Chicham was visible. I have heard that the people of that village use a Span Bridge suspended about 200 -300 m above the canyon for travelling to and from Kibber. A bridge is also being built here now, but till now there are only two ways: either the span or a road which comes from Kyoto (a small village further down the road ahead of Pangmo). We then treated ourselves to a hot cup of tea and stuffed Tibetan bread each (which though being cold, tastes exactly like a pizza), glued to the views around us.
