Hospitality

Strangers on the bus, a friendly smile and 15 minutes later having tea at home. Hospitality beyond words in the smallest hamlets of Himachal. Met this nice lady on the way to the Himri pass (3261m) from Kullu to the beautiful Lug valley.

Temples

Many small hamlets in Himachal possess beautiful wooden handicrafted temples. Here at Himri village on the way to the Himri pass (3300m) to the Lug valley

Cold Sweat

Running around 75 days in a single dress mandates a periodic refresh in the mountain streams along the way. A fine balance between braving the ice cold water and piling up a few days of sweat. High above one can spot theHimri pass (3261m) leading from Kullu to Lug valley in Himachal
