We were very close to buying a motorcycle - an Enfield - and cruising the mountains with it. It's quite common here, and there are hundreds of bikes passing from travweller to traveller on a rotating basis. It was tempting, but it would have meant storing it for as long as we would have driven it, so we decided not to. Perhaps a return trip...?
Prayer flags above Spiti Valley.
Chaam dancing near Mudh, at a festival at a monastary.
The fabulous Spiti Valley: there's a monstary perched above a cliff in the bottom right corner of the photo which is more than 1000 years old.
More amazing scenery from the Spiti Valley. If anyone has read Seven Years in Tibet, Heinrich Harrer had to walk up this valley on his way to Tibet, after he escaped an internment camp during WWII. There are powers lines and a road now, but I doubt much else has changed in the 60 years since.
