People of Ladakh: Snapshots from the Land of High Passes

Ladakh was hidden away from outside world until around last decade. Since then it is witnessing  a tremendous influx of tourists both Indian and foreign. It has swiftly turned into a Mecca for motorists. The people of Ladakh were amazingly friendly and very happy to pose for a photo.  These pictures were taken during my visit in August 2013. All these happy faces at 3000 meters above sea level have positively helped me acclimatize to high altitude.

  1. Thank you so much for giving my latest post a thumbsup, Sreejith. I love seeing other parts of the world, so thank you for the lovely pictures. I, too, love what you’ve captured in the last photo–the boy’s eyes, the way his sisters are holding on to him.
