Photographer's Note

A still of the Indus valley facing city of Leh on left, what a beautiful mix of diversification in the landscape. Just to inform the white spot on left is not snow it was the strong sunlight reflecting from the surface of the mountain, while snow can be seen on the higher mountain peaks behind it, and on the lower left is the Army area.

Leh was an important stopover on trade routes along the Indus Valley between Tibet to the east, Kashmir to the west and also between India and China for centuries. The main goods carried were salt, grain, pashm or cashmere wool, charas or cannabis resin from the Tarim Basin, indigo, silk yarn and Banaras brocade.
