6 photographers. 11 nights & 10 days. More than 2500 kilometers. Jammu - Srinagar - battle grounds of Drass & Kargil - Leh - Hemis festival - Pangong Tso - Nubra Valley - Tso Moriri - Tso Kar - Keylong - Manali. More than 7000 shutter clicks.Freezing nights. Shooting at 18380 feet - world's highest motorable road. And finally, back with tanned skin & frostbites.

What else? Perhaps the best 10 days of life, well spent! If the greenary of the mountains of Kashmir was welcoming, then the passes of Chang la & Baralaccha was scary, not to mention the great Khardung la. Short of breath was way to life, and a charming team was the life to it.

Though this is not the first time I went to Ladakh, but every time I reach in front of those mighty mountains; I see, I feel them new & warming to my heart. Every mountain has something to say in different colours at different times of the day. The Indus & Zanskar are flowing at their own pace since ages & changing colours with seasons. And the Buddhist monks are chanting the heart-warming mantras for life, after-life.

What else? I'm still in a hangover of mountains...can't say more. The images will be available here.
