Legends from an old Tibetan village

Wandering in the Silk route a few weeks ago before the New Year
started,I had a lot to learn and experience in
an old Tibetan village near Lungtung,India.I used my camera
to discover the endless variety of charms that the place had to offer.
It could not be a single photo as I had to shoot the place in different
angles in the presence of light.

Firstly before I could interact with the denizens of the village,I preferred
to wander near the sunrise point to catch the enigmatic divinity in my lenses.
I explored the grounds of the sunrise point perched above the meandering road.But prior to the actual sunrise,I had to engross myself in silence and wait for quite some time.There were no sounds coming,the only thing that I could feel is the sight of the empyrean changing colors.I enjoyed the view of the morning sun looking like a strawberry and I am really grateful to the clouds for not accumulating during the coverage.

After the sunrise,I was lucky to enjoy the views from the top as I could see the
entire Tibetan village and everything was visible including the monasteries and the retreats.I went to pay a visit to the museums and the other local places and I could hear the sounds of the birds and feel the cool breeze that passed several times a day.I had to capture the old,weathered signs as the day passed by and the houses and retreats survived ages of the sun and winds.The locals living there had innocent faces,the children wore thick clothes to protect themselves from the cold and there was peace and stability in the area.

We prepared for campfire at night and everything was completed including the dinner and other celebrations that we had planned for the day.The people prepared their own food and served us throughout the day which was something I had never experienced before.There was lack of mobile
communication in the area but we could go a few miles to regain the coverage and network.The children played cricket in the evening and helped the family in other household work.Everything looked so accomplished before we could make our way to the city and look at the relics from the area.There were ungraveled roads and more than ten twisted alleys in the area which helped us in keeping ourselves fit and healthy during the voyage.

  1. Life seemed so peaceful and simple in those villages don’t you think? I love stumbling in tiny villages and wandering off the touristy trails to discover how the locals really live and interact with them…that’s the essence of travel, truly opening your eyes to the world not just as we know it.
