Exploring the Spiti Valley, India (09/2018)

After four days of driving, we finally reached our destination: Kaza, the administrative capital of the Spiti Valley.

In the following days, we conducted field work in the mountains along the Spiti Valley. This enabled us to visit small villages and remote monasteries. We also had the chance to see some of the magnificent wildlife of the Spiti Valley, for example, groups of ibex and blue sheep. Unfortunately, the weather was rather bad with common rain showers and occasionally cold wind. In any case, we had a fantastic time in this spectacular region of the Indian Himalayas.

After we finished our work, we left the Spiti Valley taking the extremely bumpy road north to Keylong and Leh.
