The ‘moon walk’

We said in our previous post that Ladakh is a paradise for trekking. And in fact the highlight of our trip to Ladakh has been a multi-day trekking across some of the most remote valleys and of the highest passes of the so called trans-Himalaya.

It took us a couple of days to really leave the last Ladakhi villages behind us, but once we finally reached the core of the Zanskar Range, the backbone of Ladakh, we felt on another planet, overwhelmed by the silence, the solitude, and the sublime beauty of this harsh landscape.

They say that trekking in Ladakh is like walking on the moon. We can’t agree more...
