Ladakh, The Himalayas and Snow leave me Speechless.

Pictures taken near the Hemis Monastery , Ladakh, India at an altitude of 13000 feet above Sea Level ( 3962 metres) .

The unusual High Altitude Desert of Ladakh can give you a Sunstroke and Frostbite at the same time.

Am cooling off looking at these pictures as temperatures climb to a maximum of 40 degrees Centigrade in New Delhi as I pen this post.

    1. Ha ha, not promotional, but factual. High Altitude makes the Air rarefied, thus UV Rays are not bounced off. So with your Head in the Sun, you can be Sunburnt and with feet in the shade you may get a frostbite as temperature dip to -20C.
