Land of Yaks
Traditionally a Land of Yaks and mules, Spiti region was always dependent on them for transport, farming, milk product and many other daily needs. With the time and better facilities, things are changing and a lot of Yak’s responsibility is not taken care by machines. but its still a most sought after.
Milk from female Yalk (Churis) is very nutritious and used for many milk products. I recently tried this milk curd with roasted barley powder and the taste by awesome.
Yaks are very well adapted for the harsh environment of high altitude mountains and hence survive very well in the mountains of spiti.
