Dear friends,
Had a trip of the roof of the world during the later part of August 2014. Will try to bring to you some images, thoughts & experiences , in most uncoordinated manner perhaps. Some images to start with. I will take some time perhaps but I do hope to complete the job
Please share your thoughts as always

The kind old man at Gongma home stay, Pangong Tso



The colour of the stones



The stragglers



The light of sky

Great thread Somnath. I have seen so many photographs of Ladakh (especially on the other travel forum ! ) that sometimes I feel as if I have already been there, though I have yet to do so. But your photographs are something else.


Please don't stop.

Great shots Somnath. I've been to Ladakh twice and seen countless pictures. Yours bring a fresh perspective to Ladakh's scenic beauty in a way only a professional photographer can.
