And so we left the Nubra Valley:
its awesome beauty; its monastery; its deserts; and its hints of Shangri La.

It was one I had to leave the car for – you can see it further along the road..

That is a truly stunning image. The stillness of the water is amazing.

It was one of those photo-opportunities I could not let slip away!
We were driving out of Diskit and beginning to head for the Khardung Pass when I spotted the mountains perfectly reflected in that river. I asked Norvo, our driver, to stop – he was always very patient with me – then walked back to capture the scene.
Looking at that picture now, and seeing our car against the dramatic Ladakhi landscape, brings a bitter-sweet nostalgia..

This is such a remarkable photo. The reflections of your journey have shared it well.

Norvo, our driver, usually knew exactly which places we should stop at for “photo-opportunities”, but this one was new to him.
