Himalayan Wonderland: Travels in Lahaul and Spiti by Manohar Singh Gill

Expenses incurred during the emergency situation or evacuation• We rushed down to take shelter in a lodge in Pheriche. Legend has it that the childless couples wishing to have a baby from across Bhutan and occasionally from overseas are blessed with a child after visiting this mysterious temple.

Festivals of Lahaul, death rites, education system, monasteries of Lahaul; everything finds a mention in this book. But unfortunately, due to the cloudy weather conditions the service was halted for a while and we had to satisfy ourselves with just the view of the Town from the upper station of Ropeway.

We begin one of the rejuvenating and picturesque hikes 3 hours climbing up through a forest of moss-covered rhododendrons, hemlock, birch, juniper, spur and bamboo undergrowth past a row of fluttering prayer flags to Lungchutse temple.

A love affair with the Himalayas! Thereafter, the name came to be known as Kurje meaning imprint of the body. Next morning we started from Lachung, which serves as the base for exploring Yumthang Valley. After passing a chorten and Khewa Lhakhang through gentle grassy slopes carpeted with purple primluas, your hike ends at the local community Himalayan wonderland.

All applicable internal taxes and service fees• which is Himalayan wonderland few hours away from Yumthang Valley and is very close to the Indo-Chinese border. Continue to Thimphu city 2,300mhome to approximately 138,736 inhabitants. Gill described Lahaul Valley in vivid details bringing life to the otherwise gloomy winters of the valley.

It is said to have been built by King Srongtsen Gempo of Tibet in 659 A. Kairon, as the author states, pushed education into the valley. For photographers, the light in Mustang is a different ball game to the rest of the Himalaya — a unique landscape of contrast, textures, Himalayan wonderland and patterns. Seamless service, safety, and security are the cornerstones of the operations, and exclusivity is given by the most thorough planning. After an hour the light was failing fast and just as I was planning to pack up for the day the clouds lifted for a moment to reveal a serrated ridge of Thamserku floating impossibly high above the waiting trekkers.
