Fort in ruins at Hankar village

Ladakh without exception has had a troubled and violent past with invaders making their way over the Himalayas.

This fort in Hankar village for sure has a lot of history within its ruins.

I did spend a bit of time here admiring the choice of location and construction. Quite a feat of human accomplishment. Must have been some very unpleasant visitors to have warranted such a difficult construction.

I am reminded of a popular Ladakhi saying:

"Ladakh, a land so barren...that only the best of friends or the fiercest of enemies visit us."

Regards and best wishes,

Sattva
