The National Geographic Magazine © National Geographic Society Kodachrome by Hay T. mismore Tribesmen Cultivate Steep Canyon Walls up to the Overhanging Cloud Banks Ridges with almost perpendicular sides wall in the valley, 30 miles long and about 4 miles wide. They are punctuated by 14,000-foot peaks. Tiny villages, built on nearly every available terrace, dot the cliffs. Clamped over the whole valley, a lid of fleecy white clouds clings to the tops of the ridges.
