And now for something completely different. On a trip to Chail, Himachal Pradesh, I took a detour to Kali ka Tibba, about 7km away from Chail. This hill-top with a new Kali temple is one of those places in the Himalayas from where you can get a 360 degree view of the mountains all around. In the panorama below, to the left one can see the snow-clad peaks of the Great Himalayan Range in the distance; the mountain straight ahead in the distance is Chur Dhar, which is one of the highest mountains in the Lower Himalayas; and to the right the hills get lower in the direction of the plains. We can almost see from the Great Himalayan Range to the north all the way to the plains to the south. And this is only one half of the view. On the other side, we can see the Dhaula Dhar range going towards Kangra. It’s quite a view. Click on the panorama for a larger photo.
