The Wayfarer Diaries: Spiti Beautiful

20-01-2017, 1700 hours, Ki – Kaza Road, Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India:

As we headed back from Ki monastery to Kaza, the sunset exposed some of the most spectacular views one can get in Spiti. It has been a hectic day with all of us busy with our own agendas. What is weird is that today everybody is completely quiet. I guess maybe all of us are tired or maybe lost in the mountains like me. Though there is less snow which is a major issue, it has on the other hand made it easier for people (like us and many others) to visit around the valley with the ease of an automobile. I hope people soon realise what effects global warming is having on the ecology around here, though being hundreds of kilometres away from the cities where pollution has poisoned the air.
