I'm up in the clouds

Have spent a gorgeous few days in the barren Spiti Valley. Shabbat I was in Kibber, the world's highest settlement connected to electricity and a road and a village with charm overload. 4,200 metres high. Had more of a shabbat hike than a shabbat walk.

But now it's onwards and upwards, 8 days' trekking through the mountains towards Ladakh. Just three of us and a couple local guides, who will take us over a 5,600 metre pass and towards the closest you can come to Tibet without messing with the Chinese.
