Remote Trekking in Ladakh

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Christine Mead

This scene captured my attention as another trekker heads out across the landscape, providing a fleeting sense of the immensity, remoteness and beauty of this mountain region. There are very few locals or tourists in this area, and the peaceful escape that this provided made Ladakh a special place for me.

Location: Ladakh, Indian Himalaya
