These are not images. These are great stories of trekking in Ladakh. We were astonished with admiration when we looked at them.
We were looking for stories and pictures on trekking in Ladakh in preparation for our own trek in Markha Valley in August this year. When we searched in Picasa we stuck gold mine.
