We walked back to Kibber as we had to pitch our tents, have dinner and get some rest. Sky was turning from light blue to dark letting the stars play peek-a-boo with us. Night made this place even more serene with silhouettes of mountains and no street light to show us the way. That's exactly where I ever wanted to be. In the middle of nowhere, unknown to the fascinations of materialistic world and knowing nothing but silence. But staying here wasn't an option because I wasn't alone. 6 other people I went Spiti with were already making their way to Kibber and I had to catch up.
Anyhow we reached Kibber by 9pm. Home stays were turning out the lights and we urgently had to find a place to eat. Rainbow Guest House opened their doors for us. They served us with delicious Maggi, Dal-Chawal, Roti-Sabji and Ginger Tea. It helped me regain my energy to pitch our tents and once we were done with that, I stared into the sky; admiring different Galaxies.
This time, instead of capturing them in my camera, I captured them in my eyes. It was a tough decision though, because we are in a habit of capturing everything in our camera and watching everything through our lens than eyes, but I know how to convince myself.
With thoughts of living in present I fell asleep and woke up with the hee-hawing of mules in the morning. We didn't stay in Kibber for long then and left soon after breakfast.
After travelling on rough yet soothing roads of Spiti for 8 kms, we reached Key Gompa in 1 hour only. If I give a description of roads, it will sound repetitive so I request you to feel them in the video I will upload soon.
