India Hidden Valley Photo Essay

This Aug. 17, 2016, photo shows the mountain village of Demul, in Spiti Valley, India. For centuries, the sleepy valley nestled in the Indian Himalayas remained a hidden Buddhist enclave forbidden to outsiders. That's all now starting to change since India began allowing its own citizens as well as outsiders to visit the valley in the early 1990s. In this hillside village of Demul, with only some 250 residents, people have devised a system whereby half of the residents move in with their neighbors while renting their earthen-hut homes to travelers during the summer, and then share the earnings.
