In photos: The People of Ladakh, India

Have you ever been ‘glamping’? I spent all of last week in Ladakh at The Ultimate Travelling Camp‘s glam camping sites in Thiksey (Leh Valley) and Diskit (Nubra Valley). And what an experience it was! I will be writing more about it soon, but first, here’s a quick photo-essay on one of my favourite themes – the people of Ladakh.

One of my most memorable experiences was having dinner with the monks at Thiksey Monastery.

This monk at Matho Monastery is positively radiating an aura!

I was lucky to attend the colourful Hemis Festival last week, some pictures from there.

Met a brassware seller from Chilling at Shey Palace in Leh
