This little lagomorph is chewing a plant root and another of its kind is sitting hidden under a rock to soak in some sunlight. They had built burrows all over the slope (in the last picture).
Dayara bugyal (bugyal means a high altitude meadow in local language). Dividing line between the central and the greater Himalayas.
I went to this beautiful place perched at some 3050 mts above sea level in the lap of the Himalayas. The trek was tiring but worth the effort. Lovely grasslands stretched across the mountains covered with snow in patches. We camped there for a day with no other humans in a 10 km radius. The night sky was unforgettable with trillions of stars.
