The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” ~said Marcel Proust.

Ladakh in winter is when you can truly understand and experience these lines.
For those of you who have travelled to Ladakh in summer , the Winter brings in a totally new , overwhelming experience.

With Temperatures ranging from -10 to -25, the entire landscape is covered in a thick blanket of snow. The frozen rivers, frozen waterfalls, frozen shores, wilted tress, blue skies, no tourists interfering in pictures and lots of local festivals add to the beauty of the place making Ladakh in winter a heaven for photographers
What’s more, the tranquil, azure blue waters of the Pangong lake also become a thick layer of ice sheet on which you can play cricket, drive your car or even do a somersault. 

So enjoy this trip into the Frozen Wonderland of Ladakh.
