Photographer's Note

This view of Spiti Valley as is from the roof of the Kye Monastry...14 kms from Kaza, dist centre of Spiti, its one of the oldest and most recognised monastries in the Spiti Valley..Located close to Spiti river and perched at a dizzying height of 4116 mts it is one of the biggest in Spiti..it was founded by Dromton in 11th century and now belongs to Gelupa Sect..

The spiti river flowing nearby has turned an otherwise barren land into a green patch..these green fields are a refreshing sight from the gompa..the road in the pic goes towards Kibber, omce upon a time regarded as highest village in the world..now the credit goes to Gette, a little further to Kibber..
