I captured this image at the end of June, 2012 when I started my journey from Kargil to Padam via Panikhar, Rangdum. After crossing the famous pass "Pensi La" (in Ladakh La means "Pass") I faced this famous glacier "Drang Drung".
Drang Drung is a mountain glacier situated near the Pensi La mountain pass at the Kargil - Zanaskar Road in Kargil district of Jammu and Kashmir in India. The Drang-Drung Glacier is likely to be the largest glacier in Ladakh other than Siachen Glacier in the Karakoram Range with a maximum length of 23 kilometres.
I am really lucky to reach this place and got a stunning beautiful image.
best wishes to all

This is an amazing display of nature's extremes. Excellent clarity and light. I'm wondering your position, to which this spectacular view fell.

Beautiful photo and well executed.
What is sad here, is that this glacier was probably up to the grey wall, on the left, of the valley in the early 20th century, and I predict that there will be little of this glacier in 50 years.
I am envious that you have such scenery to behold, but I am immensely grateful to you for sharing these spectacular scenes with us on Trekearth.

Hello Swapan - As a lover of wild landscapes this has plenty of appeal for me. The glacier snakes through the valley and as you took the shot under good light the textural details are well realised.
Warm regards and thanks for sharing this lovely shot with us.

a very good nature picture, thankfully well lit by the sun. We can see that the glacier is reciding due to the glabal warming I suppose with the black rocks on its sides, but still snaking in its valley at the foot of the snowy peaks.
What is the altitude of this scene?
have a lovely WE

The view is incredible and you took a magnificent photo from a super viewpoint with the mountains and glacier on the diagonal. The clarity is first class.
Very well done indeed.
Kind Regards, Ann

First, let me congratulate you upon joining TE.
Glaciers is one phenomenon we do not have in israel, and for me it's a stunning sight, and photography-wise most intriguing.
Fine clear picture, DOF and contrst applied superbly.
Best regards, keep posting and writing critiques.

Wow, it's beautiful. Like heaven. Perfectly aligns with stories of beauty of Kashmir I listened from my Indian friends. Great angle and perspective which describes this natural treasure in a nice way. Regard, Petar.

Interesantan tekst o gleceru sa opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazan glecer i planina sa snegom.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa belim oblacima.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
