Photographer's Note

After 3 successive photo posts from the plains of Mumbai, its time to reach rarified heights again ! :- )

Returning from the dizzying heights of Komik (4587 metres) , we passed through villages of Hikkim & Tashigang, our destination being our base at Kaza (3740 metres). The drop in elevation between Komik & Kaza was about 850 metres = 2800 feet. Our car almost hurtled down the slope, along narrow roads winding along the mountains. Towards one side, the steep drop to the abyss below was heart stopping.

We stopped at one place, more of less half way down. From this ‘lookout point’ we could see the town of Kaza & the pea fields by the River Spiti in the far depths. The feeling of vertigo was palpable… one can easily take a tumble down the hurtling depths…& this sheer thought sent shivers down our spines
