Day 1

Did I land on the moon ? If you visit Spiti you are bound to get that thought ! And then it dawned upon me.. this place seems so out of this world ... because it actually is from a different world... 40 to 50 million years ago all this was under water... apparently Spiti valley was the river bed of Tethys in pre historic time, till the plates clashed and our Himalayas rose up.... Young fold mountains... yeah.. this was definitely back to school...

And then  it hits you.. this is how it looked under water... lime stone formation, sand and gravel, sealife fossils, seabuckthorn berry with omega acid and vitamin u get in fishes... Wow .. all at 16000 ft !!

I am walking on mountain or under water ...
