Photo of the Day: we decided to head to the Spiti Valley before the rohtang pass opened up. so instead of doing the easier and shorter manali to kaza route we ended up taking the jalori pass and coming via recong peo. this added an easy 20 hours to our journey including a night halt. this photo was taken in kalpa, a small village barely 8 km from recong peo in the kinnaur valley of himachal. we were really in a rush and dying to get to spiti otherwise we would definately have spent atleast a week here. it was in kalpa that we realised why we havent seen any apples, and that was because the apple trees were just flowering. so we spent just one night here surrounded by snow caps on all sides and nestled in apple blossoms. and that has got to be one of the coolest playgrounds. no pun intended.
