Photographer's Note

AS I was zooming on the mountain tops near the village of Chitkul, I spotted this dilapidated and deserted hut among the pines, covered with fresh snow. I asked the villagers why they build huts so high in the mountains that too in the middle of a pine forest. What they replied was very interesting. They said they did not built it..it is the handiwork of either the Indian or the Chinese army who built these for night shelters during ruotine reconnaissance treks. So i name it the spying hut :-)
Thanks for looking.
