Beautiful Zanskar

As much harsh, rough, dramatic, apparently inhospitable is Ladakh (or, at least, what is commonly considered Ladakh, i.e. the Indus Valley and the Stock range), as green, blooming, and flourishing is the Zanskar Valley.

Here green (a lush green) is the predominant colour - but the yellow, the blue/violet, and the white of the flowery meadows make the landscape bright (we saw an entire meadow of edelweiss!), and the sharp and snow-capped peaks that surround the valley (the Kun and the Nun above all) give the valley a more ‘alpine’ touch.

We just had a taste of this less popular (because more difficult to reach) valley, but we would have certainly loved to stay longer had we had more time. Perhaps next time...

  4. come dico sempre nelle mie presentazioni, anche se smettessimo oggi di emettere gas a effetto serra, gli effetti del cambiamento climatico continuerebbero per decenni e decenni... (ad effetto, no?)

    know that entire Zanskar valley region and entire Ladakh
    valley region is very lush green
    'similar' to the lush greenary of valley of Kashmir(whose
    capital is Srinagar city) and entire Zanskar valley region and
    entire Ladakh valley region is full of
    trees and forests and dense forests 'similar' to the trees
    and forests and dense forests of valley of Kashmir (whose
    capital is Srinagar city) and entire Zanskar valley region and
    entire Ladakh valley region is covered
    with flowers and beauty of those flowers is 'similar' to the
    flowers of valley of
    Kashmir(whose capital is Srinagar city) ???

    2) : Matteo Marchisio I also want
    to know that "whole beauty" of above mentioned Zanskar valley
    and Ladakh valley region is 'SIMILAR OR MORE BEAUTIFUL'
