Photographer's Note

This is the one and only High School in Chitkul.I felt jealous when i saw these students learning their lessons sitting on the lap of the nature while enjoying the sun.
Chitkul in the scenic Kinnaur region of Himachal Pradesh at a height of 3,450 meters is the last village on the Indo-Tibetan border. Closed to tourist till 1993, the region has now opened its magical beauty to the world. Starting from Karchcham-Raksham, where the Baspa river joins the Sutlej, the valley opens up into this verdant village surrounded by lush green fields and high mountain peaks. Here, quaint little houses, temples, gompas conjure up the perfect image of a Shangri-La.
