PRESS RELEASE
So AFTER ye've read the story, heard our song, seen the video - however small, click by on the MAKING of it all to fathom why and how we climbed 15,000 feet above our then sane heads. This could well serve as a guide to the ROCKy Spiti Valley in the Himalayas for some, or a pointer on how to manage a 50 strong crew over a 1000 kilometers of himalayas in 9 days and still produce 5 shooting days. Surf the menu for more details ...

But MOST IMPORTANTLY, here are the good great people who in thier various capacities were a part of this opus and hereby get this great grand T H A N K Y O U from us the parikrama.

BASANT GIRI for so many things, infact this whole trip wouldn't have worked this way if he wasn't a native, and such a f&^%in dude
