Wonderful article by Mr. M. Bhandari and great photos of Ramni by Mr. M. Negi. My friend Sheelraj Bhalla and I visited Ramni in 1958 on a trek from Gwaldam to Gohna Tal (which was a lake back then). Villagers were very kind, allowed us to sleep overnight in the schoolhouse. Ramni seems more modern and much bigger now than it was in 1958, but still seems as beautiful, with stunning views of Nanda Ghunti and Trisul to E and Nandakini valley below.
