    1. Hello Shailendra,
      I’m glad you liked it. I really like the Bhotia community, having spent some time with them in the various valles of Garhwal and Kumaon. Has the barter system started again? That’s very interesting to hear. I’ve been planning to visit and explore the Johar valley for a while, especially cross the Unta Dhura and reach the upper reaches of the Dhauli Ganga valley. Hope you get to do good research and talk to you soon.
