I love everything about Ladakh! And its a no surprise as everyone loves it. The people, the culture and the breathtaking landscapes – everything about the place is magical. The place provides an ample opportunity for photographs and any picture taken from any camera is picture perfect.
These photographs definitely prove that there is no other place like Ladakh and it truly is a heaven on Earth.

Colorful big statues of Buddha
Ladakh is a land of Buddha. Since Buddhism is followed in this region, there are so many monasteries dedicated to Buddha. The statues of Buddha are definitely worth visiting and seeing. Some of them are really huge.
Paintings of Buddha inside the temples and monasteries
The temples and monasteries portray the life of Buddha and they have amazing paintings on the walls dedicated to his preaching and stories.
Prayer flags and wheels
I am in love with prayer flags. I just have so many at home currently. They are so colourful and pretty.
The splendid landscapes
There is no place or corner in Ladakh that is not picture perfect. Every photograph taken there is beautiful and I have never seen a bad picture of Ladakh.
The animals and the wildlife in Ladakh is unique and extremely cute. So definitely watch out for that cuteness.
This is one place in India where you can see Milky Way. The stars are amazing and because of the clear skies, it makes it possible to see the dust easily.
Tree trunks, bridge and the post box
The life of Ladakhis is interesting. They have found ways to adapt to the climate and nature. And because of this, one can see some of the different ways these people live.
Monasteries, monks and the stupas
As I said earlier, Ladakh has so many monasteries and each one is beautiful and different from the other.
The Surahi Dance
On our first day in Leh, there was a cultural dance and music show performed by the Ladakhi localities. One of the dances, the dancers performed was the Surahi dance. The Surahi dance is also known as the Chang Rches. In this dance the dancers place the pots of Chang on their heads and dance. The Chang or Chhaang is a local alcoholic beverage in Ladakh. It is a barley wine.
