Photographer's Note

A View of a Village in Ladakh, in state of Jammu and Kashmir.

The local people of Ladakh do a lot of terrace farming, since the water is scarce in this part of the earth.

The advantages of terrace farming are, optimum utilisation of water and effective land use and preventing soil erosion. The source of water are glaciers.

Ladakh is located at an altitude of 4000 m and above, there we find highest motorable road in the World !

And since there is no considerable vegetation, it is also called as Cold Desert of India. Large parts of land are barren.
