Ladakh - Spectacularly jagged, arid mountains enfold this magical Buddhist ex-kingdom. Picture-perfect gompas (Tibetan Buddhist monasteries) dramatically crown rocky outcrops amid whitewashed stupas and mani walls. Colourful fluttering prayer flags share their spiritual messages metaphorically with the mountain breeze. Prayer wheels spun clockwise release more merit-making mantras. The journey into Ladakh Himalaya will give you a view into traditional Ladakhi Village life and an appreciation for the grandeur of the great Himalayan Range. On this photo adventure, trek, camp, explore the 10th century monasteries, the massif cold desert of the Nubra, high altitude lakes and moon landscape.

Nubra valley is a dash of lush greenery in Ladakh's dessert and moonlike landscapes and slopes. There are high altitude passes, challenging roads, beautiful lakes, inviting treks, mesmerizing valleys; enough to keep you, your gaze and your camera occupied for as long as you stay here. Nubra Valley is surrounded from all the sides by snow-capped Himalayan ranges. Drive over the highest motorable road in the world, that can be experienced nowhere else in the world.

Pangong Tso - Stretching around 150km (with the eastern two-thirds in China), this mesmerising high altitude lake plays artist with a surreal palette of vivid blues, which contrasts magically with the surrounding colourful mineral swirls of starkly arid, snow-brushed mountains. The scene is also striking for the almost total lack of habitation along shores whose turquoise waters can look Caribbean
