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.
