Sunrise at Multhan

After breakfast, we went out for local sight-seeing towards Baragram, approximately 15 km away.

As we stopped on the way for a photo break, suddenly we saw some vultures.

When they were hovering over us, their wing span appeared to be scary.

Up above the world so high...

This entire region appeared to be a vegetable hub. The fresh produce of cabbage, peas, radish were being loaded in vans, which would be transferred to larger trucks at Multhan for further transport. We saw that on the previous evening from our hotel room.

It's wonderful to see that there are schools in these remote villages.

Rash driving? Urban influence?

Another road can be seen in the above pic, which is perhaps a trekker’s trail coming from Billing.

Is that a trekker’s trail? Or a motorable road?

P1120051-1.jpg

We again saw many vultures flying here.

This was once used to transport vegetables. Now it has become defunct.

These animals are used now for carrying goods.

A lady came to us and offered Prasad of a local deity, which tasted very nice.

Rajgundha trek route. We saw a few foreigners walking back. Perhaps they know these remote Indian nooks better than us, the Indians!

It was time to go back to Barot,

Baragram served us typical Himachal rusticity with an almost virgin flavour, and we liked it very much.

Who Am I
Day 7 continued – exploring Barot

P1120121-1.jpg


While coming back from Baragram, we explored a few marvels of Barot.

P1120123-1.jpg


The British established a haulage trolley system for transporting construction material of a dam on the Uhl, between Barot and Jogindernagar. After the road connection was established in 1975, this gradually became defunct.

P1120146-1.jpg


P1120149-1.jpg


P1120150-1.jpg

BS 10”X6” – size of the joist used

P1120137-1.jpg


We were now on the other bank of the Uhl river.

P1100028-1.jpg


P1100031.JPG


There is a temple of Dev Pashakot; it requires a short trekking.

The temple door was closed. An aged lady was lying on the floor in front of the door. She pointed towards another aged man in a hut who was having the keys, but he ignored my request. After multiple requests, she asked the person to open the door, and he obliged. However, she laid down a condition that we should not enter inside.
