Don’t be overwhelmed by this small village because the village coming next will startle you. It is none other than the Uttarey village. But nothing worth seeing comes easy. You will have to cross the rocky terrain, slippery and narrow landslide areas to reach there. You should watch your steps here and not get engrossed in the scenery around you..!!
The houses are placed on steps of mountain slope such that it looks more beautiful than coastal houses of Italy. Houses are made of walls of rock and mud having wooden sloppy ceilings. You will be astonished to see how the village must have survived at such an altitude of 12,000 feet, far away from basic amenities. Well, you can find that out by interacting with these villagers.
The flowing stream has small shrubs covered with a layer of shiny ice on its sides. Bright flowers with purple, yellow, red color, will enlighten your mood.
After a strenuous walk around the boulders and stream, Dood is the best place to relax. Just sit beside the flowing stream, look at the serene all around and the Himalayan peaks.
