Photographer's Note

The name of this village is Kibber. It is 10-15 km by road from Ki Monastery.
At an altitude of 4200 meters, one time this used to be the highest village in the world that one could drive to. I think now this title has been snatched away by some village in Tibet or in Spiti (India).
Population of Kibber is around 350 people

Best thing to do after the restaurant in the village closes at 9 PM is to gaze at the stars. Milky way looks like a thick white patch of cloud.

Critiques would be appreciated.
PP: Some sharpening, and brightness/contrast adjustments.
