Zanskar, Ladakh - Januray, 2015

Photograph from a winter expedition to this remote, winter wonderland.

Access to this place is 'practically' possible for only 4-5 months in a year when the road from Kargil becomes operational after the snows melt on the high passes enroute.

Rest of the year this location is cut off from the world.

I made my way to this place with the locals, who in the depths of winter make it to the outside world on a blanket of ice...'The Chadar'...when the Zanskar river freezes, allowing passage over it.

It was -25 degrees celsius when i made this photograph. At night it was -36 degrees celsius.

Best regards,

Sattva

P.s: Things have changed quite a bit now as far as access is concerned. Two more roads are making their way to this location from different directions...one of them is all season, all year access road.

I wonder how long the tranquil beauty of this place will last once that road becomes real and operational.
