Photographer's Note

This is an unusual view I took of Hemis Monastery a few years ago, whist on a trip to Ladakh. The monastery lies at the end of the Markha Valley Trek, an 6 day hike through some staggering countryside. I was informed by a friend that it was supposed to contain some secret esoteric texts linking Buddhism with the advent of Christianity, although how true this is I cannot say. However, it is well worth a visit on one of the jeep-based monastrey tours offered from the capital, Leh.
