Shelfmark: Photo 11/(110)

Item number: 11110

Genre: Photograph

Photograph of the Spiti Valley, taken by Samuel Bourne in the 1860s. This is a view of the ruined fort with the Manirung Pass and range in the distance. This photograph was taken on Bourne's third and final trek up towards the source of the Ganges. He was fascinated by the wild and desolate Spiti Valley region, where he photographed the village, fort and Tibetan monastery of Dankhar situated on a rocky mountain escarpment, where it seemed the buildings seemed as if they had been extruded from the earth.
