Spiti Valley is a cold desert mountain valley located high in the Himalayas in the north-eastern part of the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The name "Spiti" means "The Middle Land", i.e. the land between Tibet and India. @wikipedia .
In my previous posts, I had talked about how commercialization affected the beauty and natural habitat of the places in Ladakh. And Pangong lake is no exception here. After 2008, there's a surge in tourism which led to local people planting more and more campsites for accommodation and this increased their earnings. But they didn't know what impact it would make to the environment because generally, people think about themselves first and later, the environment.
I stayed near the lake in one of the campsites and it was a great experience looking at the star bed above you. When you are critical about the environment, you easily spot places which disturbs it. There's too much dump near the campsites caused by the people and poor drainage system. I was curious to know where did the human waste go but this question was left unanswered.
Though the government is trying to restrict the exploitations caused. Earlier, there were 50 rows of campsites which are reduced to 20. Waste carrying trucks are deployed in the area.
It's very strange to know that Ladakh is the only hill station to have it's own waste landfill ( if you remember Delhi's dumping area and compare).
Overall it was a once in a lifetime experience staying at Pangong lake but not spreading waste should be our priority during the visit here.

first impressions of Mykonos the other night 🇬🇷. I’ve been told Mykonos has amazing beaches/nightlife and is primarily flat - guess I have an attraction of staying on top of hills 🤷🏻♀️

The Academy of Athens is another interesting sight to see in the city. The building of the academy, even though built in the modern area, reflects the glory of ancient Greece beautifully. The main building is intricately decorated with Corinthian columns and a marble roof.
