frozen pathways

The high altitude wetland in Phobjika Valley is where a rare group of black-necked cranes spend their winter. They migrate from Tibet, 120km over the Himalayas (a 4hr flight) to this valley. We went out to see them at 6 in the morning, as sunrise and sunset are the two best times to see them. They spend the night in a small pond in the wetland because this makes them more safe from the leopards at night. In the morning the calling and dancing begins again, such a contrast to the frosty silent valley ~
