As I near the first anniversary of my debut solo trip, for reasons unknown I still struggle to articulate my experiences from Spiti, Himachal Pradesh. Faraway in the mountains, the silent solitude has taught me more than I expected and made me believe in the good even more. If there was only one thing I had to take away from this experience, it would be that moment in Demul when I knew that it is hope we live on.
While I have begun understanding that I may never be able to put words to this experience, I will share some arbitrary selection of photographs from my effervescent time there. These will attempt to share some moments of what I have lived there. Most other, rests within my memory and heart.
Disclaimer: These photographs do not attempt to show how spectacular the landscape of Spiti is; they are only a personal expression.
