Hikkim is a village in the eroded mountain slope in the Lahul Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh in India. This secluded house with traces all around of a ruined village which could be seen from Hikkim, appeared to be the symbol of harsh life in this part of the world. The morning light added to the mood of the image.
