Himachal Pradesh and the Spiti Valley of India
Presented by Nonna Crook
Ten years ago Nonna's husband Larry worked with the Tibetans in Dharamsala, India. The presentation includes a trip to the Spiti Valley in the northern section of Himachal Pradesh state. This area is in the Himalayan foothills, a mountainous region with steep glacial valleys, dotted with Buddhist monasteries. It is a place of austere beauty with a harsh climate, ancient culture, and hair-raising rough roads leading to remote colorful villages. They traveled by car in the first two weeks of October, always with an eye on the weather, afraid that snow would close the Kunzum Pass, which, at 15,000 ft, is one of the highest passes in Northern India.
