[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This serpiginious road is the famous ancient silk route which connected central Asia with India for trade purpose once upon a time. It is believed that Buddhism travelled all the way to China & SE Asia via this route. One can still find Mongolian double hump bactrian camels in Nubra valley on this route.

This picture has been clicked from the altitude of 17,000 feet above sea level on our way to Khardung La highest motorable pass on the silk route. Far is the Leh valley with Zanskar mountain ranges at horizon.
