Set in the Himalayas in the 1990s, this feature documents the lives and trials of the people inhabiting the remote Lolaab Valley in Northern Himalayas. Discover the architecture of the region, the unique cuisine, the means of livelihood of the people, and how they survive without access to modern facilities. Tribal medicine is still practiced, and cancer is common as without electricity, primitive heating methods called ‘kangri’ are used. Despite the challenges of living in an isolated and snow-covered area, many are content with their lives. Visit the valley to explore this wondrous world.
