Taken in the Stok Range of the Himalayan mountains in India on an eight day trek, the vast bleakness of the views contains a certain raw and potent beauty that takes your breath away. Every second of the hike at over 5000 metres is worth it to sit and enjoy such majestic views.
Location: Markha Valley, Ladakh Region, India
