Photographer's Note

The menhirs of Paang stand in this windswept gully...sentinels of an ageing Himalaya. Above begins the immense flat of the Morey Plain. Extending back from this point for 54 kms the Morey is home to an amazing people...the nomads of Rupshu.
The river below gets its colour from the immense quantities of potassium permanganate dissolved in it.

At an altitude of 4800 mtrs its cold and inhospitable for most of the year.
