Chitkul is situated around 40 km from Karcham, the place where road bifurcates from Hindustan-Tibet Road (NH 22). The Sangla Valley is a delight for nature lovers; especially the stretch after Raksham and right up to Chitkul. The valley is extremely beautiful, on the left bank of the Baspa River are snow-clad mountains and on the right bank the whole terrain is full of apple orchids and wooden houses.

This is a nice picture of the daily life in these beautiful mountains in north India.
However, you should have try to avoid to cut the feet of the shepherd...

Very attractive composition, the scale of the mountains really catches the eye, and the colors are very natural and well captured. The man in the foreground enhances the sense of depth really nicely, and the town there emphasizes the scale of the peaks. Beautiful place.
All the best

Marvellous photo. The perfectly lit mountains are the main focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground shephard as well as the village houses and mountains in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong. Very well done.
