Day 063 : Mcleodganj

Yesterday on my wandering walk towards Baghsu I had the pleasure of running into a very friendly Tibetan refugee local, Tenzin. We chatted for a while, and in the end decided to plan a walk up the hillside today. As we ascended the steep trail we ran into several stone jewels, sprinkled throughout the rugged landscape.

The terrain acts as a perfect gravity fed water system. As the snow melts from the distant mountain tops it filters down through the hills, eventually landing in the villages. This crystal clear water fills the pools and streams below, providing the means for washing clothes and bathing.

After our walk throughout the hills I returned to Mcleodganj and wandered around some more, taking advantage of the afternoon sun light.
