From Ladakh with Love

Published September 16th, 2012

They say when beauty speaks you listen. Ladakh spoke and I listened.



Vistas that shall never leave me, some of them are in this photostory.



-From Ladakh with Love

A Journey Begins

At 11500 feet , known as the "roof top of the world", the landscape of Leh greets you with its dazzling smile like its been waiting forever for you.

Confluence of Indus and Zanskar rivers

Moving through the ever changing and mesmerising land of high passes, we come across the confluence of Indus and Zanskar. A moment here makes you start thinking of the sheer brilliance with which God has sketched and painted this place on earth.

Weight of the World on my Shoulders

Trying to find interesting formations of icicles at Khardungla pass takes our mind off the breathlessness that we are experiencing at 18000 feet.

Resplendent Shades of Nature - Pangong Tso

A running cocktail of blue, green, emerald, purple and haze, surrounded on either sides by rugged mountains, leaves us enamoured. Pangong lake at 13900 feet indeed is the high point of our trip.

3 Shades of Brown, Ladakh

As if Ladakh is effortlessly honoring a promise made of never making you seeing the same vista again, these 3 distinct mountains appear out of nowhere.

Innocence or Wisdom

The glint in the eyes of this young Monk, just a few of the memories that I take back into my world until next time!

"Get off my spot"

Typical behaviour of securing one's place in the social hierarchy is evident here too as this bird shoos ways another one trying to share a warm comfortable spot.

Nubra Valley, Ladakh

Desert at Nubra valley narrates stories of gypsies who would have traversed this path towards sustaining themselves against harshness of nature.
