Pics from the upper himalaya - Ladakh

Wanted to share a few pics of the incredible landscape up there. Have been there twice, and yet feel the need to go there again and again.

Nice

Can't say anything about the pics above. It is my dream to ride there before I quit riding. Looking forward to hear the road from Manali to Leh to be opened. I follow the www.bcmtouring.com for the update of the situation up there.

When was the pics taken?

In 2009. And the road has opened again after a 2 day closure.
Monsoon is not as active now, and in september things are going to be better

Hello,

I will be in Nepal with my bike in about 2 weeks. Will you please tell me where did you take those pictures, so I can go there as well? Or maybe suggest a nice route. It can spend 2-3 weeks in Nepal.

thanks
