A Moment by Vikram Franklin

I actually had a fair many such ‘moments’ up in Ladakh where I’d visited towards the end of their summer in the first week of Sept


Ladakh, nestled between the Himalayan and Karakoram mountain ranges is one of the most magical places on earth. Known as the The land of High Mountain passes or Little Tibet, it averages 3500m in altitude and is one of the most remotely inhabited places on the planet.

The landscape is almost surreal and is breathtaking in its beauty, a land stark in its contrast between barren, brown hills and turquoise lakes surrounded by snow covered mountains. These mountains are home to a people of Tibetan heritage with a rich Buddhist culture evidenced by their many cultural festivals and events.
