Mountains in the Sky

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Hema Narayanan

Truly, Ladakh is nothing but mountains in the sky. It has terrains & transforming landscapes that are breathtaking - the shades of the mountains in the front, the repeated patterns in the mid, snow capped himalayas at the back - all these even as lush green plains emerge from this barren soil. Seemed like a palette of paints - this was a small village enroute Leh, called Ganglas Village. These stretches of roads carved amidst the hard terrains of the himalayas as a classic example of the efforts of BRO's HIMANK, which strives to build roads here for us to travel upon. True unsung heroes!

Location: Leh, Jammu & Kashmir, India
