CAST IN STONE

Leh is the Capital of the region of Ladakh. It is also a  Valley formed by the Historical Indus ( also called Sindhu) River.

The  45 kilometre drive from Leh to the famous Hemis Monastery took me through one of the most spectacular Landscapes I have ever seen.

You could well be on Pluto .

Mountains of Rocks
Rocks are Strewn over as though placed by Intent.

Hills are Cast in Stone.My imagination runs wild as I dream up faces and figures on the Rocks.

Is it the Land of Star Wars?

The Pristine Blue Skies and Clouds provide a fabulous backdrop to this Enchanting Mountain of Rock.

Are the Rocks calling out to someone beyond the Blue Skies?

The Ingenious People of Ladakh  have for centuries clung onto the Inhospitable and Barren Rocky Mountains and left their mark in the form of temples and  monuments.

 

clinging on
Clinging on like Moss

It is hard to beam into your homes a Fascinating Landscape which can only be measured by your Senses, however I have made a humble effort nonetheless.

Be Enchanted by the Indus River in the blogs to follow as it hurtles from the Snow Clad Himalayas through the Valleys Of Ladakh and beyond.
