Photographer's Note

Above Indian administered province of Jammu and Kashmir is the ancient nation of Ladakh. Here, high among the Himalayan peaks there survives and ancient Buddhist culture. The culture of Tibet, still exists in freedom in this mountain sanctuary. Here the ancient ways continue; hardly touch by the outside world. The Dali himself was visiting at the time I was there. Stupas, such as this one, dot the countryside. In these ancient relics or the ashes of greatly revered Lamas are interred. These are holy sites revered by the Buddhist people. This one is set in a valley, outside the town, with the Himalayan peaks above it.
