Day 1

It took us a lifetime to plan, cancel, re-plan and then reschedule the most cliched yet epic journey to the mountains of the Ladakh range.

12 long days of mesmerizing ever changing landscapes . Mountains left us awestruck. Enormous rivers followed us everywhere.

It is one of those amazingly beautiful places I believe where even the simplest of the camera can give you a pro-level splendid nature photo.

Sit back , relax and enjoy Ladakh through my lens.

Sarchu, where we decided to halt for the night before we finally reach Leh. No network, Not even a mark of human civilization (other than us of course) for another 150 km. Only way to communicate to the outside world was a satellite pay phone in one of the tents.

Obviously there are hundreds and thousands of snaps more. But I believe you got the gist of it. You simply have to see it in person to believe it.

Feel free to comment on the snaps, or ask questions about the trip. Will surely try to help you to not make the mistakes we did. :)

Happy Vacations.
