Poplar and willow trees are abundant and the subtle shades of green create a beautiful contrast with the brown-grey snow peaked mountains and cerulean skies. With sun baked mud brick whitewashed houses dispersed on the landscape, this village is a photographer’s delight. The locals in the village have set an example for sustainable living…
