Would you like a run-down of India?


Packed & Ready to go on Trek!

After missing our flight to Delhi, it was great to see Leh!  The trek to ChangTang was wonderful. We visited with the nomads. We also visited Tso Moriri, a beautiful lake high in the Himalayas, as well as the village of Korzok nestled between the mountains and the lake.

Our first stop--campsite 

A brief stop at a village 

Our last week in Ladakh was spent in the Dah-Hanu area.  It is a very interesting place. The people, unlike those in the rest of Ladakh who derive from Tibetan lineage, are Aryan. They tell stories of their ancestors coming from Macedonia with Alexander the Great's army. Well, they certainly look and dress quite differently! Notice the long
noses and rounded eyes. And the beautiful flowers in their hair!
More pictures later!
