Flowers of Ladakh

Mountains, some barren and some wearing the luxury of snow, deep valleys, riders wearing suit and helmets along with their heavy duty machines braving the dangerously narrow mountain passes, SUVs passing through dirt roads,  innumerable Buddhist Gompas and Stupas – these are some of the scenes that come to our mind when we dream of the mystical land called Ladakh. But this post does not deal with these stereotype scenes. This post rather deals with a unique subject “Flowers of Ladakh”. They may not be endemic, but they were pleasing to my eyes – which were overwhelmed by the brown earth and the blue skies.
