Pang on the Leh Manali highway is a small group of tents and houses where we stopped over for lunch. After crossing the two high altitude passes of Nakee La at 4739m and Lachulung La at 5065m both me and my vehicle was craving for some rest and refreshments. You need to get in whatever useful you can from this place as after leaving this place you have to cross the Morey plains which is a plateau stretching for about 50 kms. with no sign of human civilisation.
Lunch comprised of bread and omelette the same what I had for breakfast:-) that is the safest thing I found on the menu. The price was exorbitant but in places like these one cannot really worry about the price. I was just grateful that I was getting something to eat in this remote place.
Here there is a check post where you need to register yourself to enter the Ladakh autonomous region as a tourist.
Thanks for having a look.

Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i persperktiva, lepo pokazano mesto sa satorima u kojima su restorani, lepe boje.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak, intersantni restorani u satorima.
Imajte lep dan za odmor, sve najbolje.

stunning view with a great atmosphere of desolation and rustic beauty. The clarity of the mountains and the fine contrast achieved with the vivid blue sky are very effective and at the same time, do not lack naturalness. Your notes are informative and can be put to good use by anyone willing to venture into this ffascinating place.
Thanks for sharing and have a great Sunday.

what a fine portrayal of a lonely lunch stop,so sharp and clear that every interesting detail is clearly visible,including the tables and chairs.
A remote and barren location brilliantly photographed.

An interesting little anecdote to accompany this fine composition. I like the oblique angle of view with the tents used to draw the viewer into the scene; something continued by the track as it exits the camp site. Excellent technical presentation.

Very clear and sharp pic. Composition is good. I like this pic.
PS : - what is your planning this summer? Heading towards which mountain site?

Excellent composition with depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.

what a magnificent place to stop for lunch. Incredible landscape made all the more compelling under a vivid china blue sky. Awesome!
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

Witaj Subho!Amazing view.
Good frame and super colors.
Interesting document from the expedition.
Have a nice evening

There should be no purpose trying to argue about the price at a place like this, having no alternative restaurant next door. I would be so relieved to find anything at all that I would gladly pay any aprice asked for. This actually looks like a quite nice place where you can enjoy your meal outside and admire the view and bright sky while eating. This is a very exotic composition with superb sharpness and exposure.

A very interesting scene with this camp. You have included many details here and surrounding looks very special for me, with the brown and sandy hills below a very blue sky.

High quality photo, perfect clarity and depth, fantastic view of mountains and tents at the foot of the mountain, very well captured

You speak of this being a barren place, and even with these signs of humanity nearby, it doesn't offset the feeling that this is a far, far away place. The tents almost cower in the shadow of the mountains and the massive expanse of landscape. Very nice angle to take this from too,
Now I want an omelet too :)
All the best

A wonderful photo of yurts in the wilderness with great color and excellent DOF. The composition is superb, too, with the road drawing the viewer in.
Corry (4508) 2014-04-13 21:18
Beau point de vue sur ces campements au pied de la montagne. Les couleurs sont très belles avec une bonne netteté de l'image. Bien fait.

Hello Subho - I think the logistics of running a tea shop in a remote location like this must require some serious organisation and planning and I can understand why the charges are high! A shot which goes a long way to impart understanding of the journey through remote and inhospitable terrain.
Nice clear and well composed shot.
pierrefonds (69795) 2014-04-14 12:34
The distance between the tents and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the tents and of the mountains. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

Splendid photo of this camp high up in the mountains, interesting note, hope you still like Omelette?
Amazing that these guys are living in such a remote area and offering food.
Well managed, and thanks for the tip about the food we are making our first visit to India in March 2015.

Surement une expérience a faire, loin de tout, un paysage surprenant et intéressant, comme ces grande tente et "terrasses" pour accueillir le touriste, parfois il bon comme ici d'oublier le prix du repas :-)

A magnificent view in projecting these arid mountains, with its gentle slopes, showing different textures, very well equipped camp at the foot of the same, showing activity in these places, the starting point for trekking and hiking.
Beautiful colors, very natural tones.
Very good brightness and sharpness.
Very well done. I love it,
Have a nice day.
Very warm greetings.

il tuo è stato di certo un viaggio straordinario sia per le emozioni che ti ha permesso di vivere sia per le località che hai visitato che sono tutte ad altitudini elevate e non certamente facili da raggiungere.
E' molto piacevole seguirti in questo tuo andare tra le alte vette ed ammirare le foto che ci proponio giorno dopo giorno.
In questa alla composizione si unisce la bellezza del luogo nel quale le montagne vedono solo la presenza di un accampamento per ospitare colori che si avventurano fino a tale altitudini.
Ottima anche la nitidezza unitamente a contrasto e colori.
Ciao e buona serata

interesting place, good informations and photo-work. Unusual tents between the mountains.
Have a nice evening.
nikkitta (17068) 2014-04-17 13:20
Quite fascinating place, well explained in your note, good there are still places without civization
Like the capture because of the scene with the tents at the front and mountains with impressive sky contrast at the back
Very well done, tfs
