The spring season if finally here in Spiti. Spiti finally has regular supply of electricity after a month of power failure due to snowfall. The sun is shining bright for the past few weeks, causing the snow to melt and create small streams of muddy water on the streets. There is still a lot of snow. The high altitude villages of Komic, Langza and Hikkim have their slopes covered with three to four feet of snow.
I hiked up from Kaza with my initial plan of staying in Hikkim village but then I continued straight to Komic village with two kids studying in class eight and their mother. They study in Munseling School in Rangrik village and were going home for their after exam holidays.
