The Tibetan sky at night was captured in these beautiful images showing the locations stunning buildings and statues in the Himalayan Mountains. 

Grey Chow, 33, travelled for two hours to get to the Spiti Valley to capture the starry background drop along the deserted and isolated roads.

The Senior Project Engineer was able to take amazingly clear images thanks to the limited amount of little pollution at an altitude of 4,500 foot. 

He said: “There’s a lot of breathtaking scenery along the road and seeing it change from green hillsides with the crowded population to barren landscapes surrounded by snow cap mountains, was amazing.

“Thanks to its exotic location, the zero light pollution environment provided me one of the best quality night sky for Astrophotography.

“It makes me feel that how tiny we are in nature, standing there in the dark and isolated by all the noises and distractions.

“My sense became more focused and I could concentrate on every detail of the surroundings and see the stars much clearer. 

Grey was fascinated by the Key Monastery and the village of Langza, around 4,400 meters altitude from the bottom of the mountains, with an iconic Buddha statue standing on top of the hill overlooking the valley.

He said: “Unlike other places in Spiti Valley, Langza consists of rich pasture and green fields and in the morning, you can see the shepherd bringing their sheep out for eating grass.

“Me and my friend spent two nights at the Key Monastery. We slept there and ate what the monks ate for their daily meals and to be honest, it is not really that comfortable but in exchange, we experienced their lifestyle.”
