Faces, People and Moments: Capturing Human side of Spiti in Winters

Here to the wonderful people I came across, met, seen, greeted, lived with, traveled with during my winter days in Spiti.

Met these kids in Kalpa. They tried to impress me with their skating skills. Well, I am just naive. :D

Khardungla is not in Spiti. I

Khardungla is not in Spiti. I think you can make it to Khardungla on bikes mentioned. Spiti is all together a different region.

Awesome pics... looking like

Awesome pics... looking like they are living heaven. Snow everywhere. Here i am dreaming to go and watch the snowy mountains and these children's are playing their. I am feeling jealous from these kids. How innocent they are. They are far from the contested life of cities. They find a way of amusement in so much snow.. God bless them..
