I first visited Ladakh in 2008 and spent two months exploring the region from corner to corner. Later on, although I was keen to spend my travelling time exploring newer regions in the Himalayas, circumstances took me back to Ladakh again in different seasons for different reasons. Visits to Ladakh have always had unpredictable results, despite my familiarity with the place. There are times when I was awed, surprised and bowled over. And then there were times when monotony took over, when fatigue dominated and patience ran out. But running out of patience is a sin in the mountains. So you endure, you return and you see new things and go back with an increased respect for the mountain and its people.
I have just completed uploading my collection of 101 images from Ladakh, created over nearly as many days I spent gallivanting in this mountain country. That’s an average of one image per day! Click on the image below to view the full library.
