View on the Sutlej above Barung
Photographer: Bourne, Samuel
Medium: Photographic print
Photograph from the 'Album of Indian Views' taken by Samuel Bourne in 1864. Samuel Bourne photographed this view in the Sutlej Valley in 1864. Two years later, on his six-month second Himalayan journey, whilst accompanied by sixty native bearers, who were required to carry his heavy photographic equipment, Bourne and his party had to construct a rope-bridge in order to cross this River, the Sutlej, close to the village of Barung, near where this earlier view had been taken.
