A Ladakh Moment!

Ladakh is a place where one can get stupefied by its beauty at every turn. Be it its people, its landscapes, its penchant for adventure, its rarefied atmosphere or its religious fervour. And I got to see this in plenty during my winter trip to this exotic Himalayan locale.

Reflection of the Himalayan mountains on the Hemis Monastery window 
It was such a moment one fine evening at the Hemis Monastery. I had finished exploring the monastery and nearabouts and was heading back to my car when I saw this excellent reflection of the mighty Himalayas on the monastery window. The brightly coloured windows of Ladakh, in itself are quite a sight and to top it I got to see the colours of the setting sun on the Western Himalayas as a reflection in it. And the bare trees just added to the moment. In essence, a special Ladakh moment!!
