  1. WOW! What awesome captures, the sign, the mountains, the stairs and buildings built into the slope, the Buddha, they all equal an absolutely fascinating experience, one like I have never had. I am becoming more and more fascinated with India with each post! Thank you for igniting my curiosity about your homeland. 🙂

  2. The first picture make me smile. The owner of the cafeteria is really clever, with the sign he advertise his cafeteria and remind the driver of the danger on road at the same time 🙂

    • yes, indeed it was!! The beauty took our breath away… literally, because at such an altitude the air is so thin and oxygen so less that you have to be careful and walk at snail’s pace, taking a deep breath with each step.. 🙂
