Summary On August 30, , Hassina Begum, a year-old ethnic Rohingya woman, was among the few survivors of a massacre of unspeakable brutality. The advancing soldiers trapped several hundred unarmed Rohingya Muslim villagers, including Hassina, on the large bank of the river, which surrounds Tula Toli on three sides. As they approached, some fired at the crowd, others toward people trying to flee. While some Rohingya managed to escape, swimming across the fast-moving river or dashing to the surrounding hills, many terrified villagers could not run away or swim.

But in the ancient way of Himalayan travel, they're still 20 switchback roads and several torturous hours away. My blistered feet and the blighted weather have been my companion since I began my trek five days ago from Manali sanctuary in the same northern Indian state, Himachal Pradesh. But that doesn't matter anymore. I'll make it to Bara Bangal -- a village wrapped in legend, sandwiched between the Kalihani 4, meters and Thamsar 4, meters Passes, protected by impregnable mountains on the third side and the raging Ravi River on the fourth. A village hidden from the world If Google's the yardstick for measuring how much is known about our world, this village would rank pretty low. Some blogs and a handful of images are all that the search engine reveals, apart from travel agencies touting it as a hard or strenuous trek. There are conflicting stories about how the hamlet came about.
