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.
