Photographer's Note

Following my previous post, I present you the general view of Pana, at 2448m of altitude.
This village is reachable only by foot. We took about 6h of treking from Kuari Pass (4300m), after passing trough a thick forest in a trail with several steep ascents and descents. There's no running water or electricity here.

It's not easy to find plains in the Hymalaias (if at all possible), so people have to adapt to the steep morphology of these mountains. You can see the distribution of the houses, as if they were in an amphitheatre. The house I showed on my previous post is one of those.
The same happens with agriculture, using the system of terraces. There's several colors on those cultivated fields, but orange/yellow/red are the ones that attract ones eyes. I will show a closer view, in my next posts.
