We were cycling straight towards the Pakistani Kashmir border when the temple caught our eye. It was perched on top of a mountain on the far side of the valley, nothing too exceptional in a land known as “Little Tibet”. Yet we were inexplicably attracted to this one, so we decided to undertake a challenging day-long detour which, not surprisingly, involved a perilous passage suspended around a cliff. I couldn’t tell who was more stupefied: the monks to see us, or us to be told that we were the first known foreigners to have made it here in 500 years!

    Who is “we”?

    In what language were you able to communicate?

  4. comment number 4 by: Yannick

    I was with Audrey, my girlfriend. As for communication, luckily, one of the 8 monks in the temple spoke English, so that was great!

    Amazing Yannick. Keep them coming. Have you considered the eccentric places of ‘Derinkuyu underground city’ (in Turkey) or Cueva de los Tayos (in Ecuador)? So many mysterious places out there. Many are listed in the History.com series Ancient Aliens (see http://www.history.com/shows/ancient-aliens) unbelievable places to explore…

    De par ta vibe unique, contente de savoir qu’ils ont fait connaissance avec un ”étranger” lumineux et loin du possible colon de Resort ;P

    Bravo pour cette découverte dont les échanges furent surement d’une richesse inestimable (avec un apport de sérénité réciproque) !
