Behind the Image

by Ana-Maria Pavalache

As one reaches the top of the treacherously steep road to Sultanabad, the view opens up onto a vast pasture, surrounded by steep slopes and towering peaks. Concentrated on the southerly slopes of the main valley, toward the high pasture of Challabat, are the upper forests of Basho - the largest natural forest in the mountainous region of Baltistan. For generations, the local community managed this forest in order to satisfy their food and livelihood needs.
