Hi I don't Know How NV Had Gone to Ladakh - By Road or Air - But Let Me Tell you If You call These Pics Amazing of Ladakh I Bet Rediff.com is undermining the Beauty of Ladakh! I Would Suggest You Start Your Clicks from Zozila Pass (17,500 Ft.) to Leh. Take Rest for Day and then to Kardung La Pass (18,380 Ft.) to Lake and Back. Take a day or two in Leh and Around Like Japnese Temple and Magnetic Hill and Army run Gurdwara where You will have Many Many Wonderful Scenes. And Then take a route from Leh via Sarchu and Reach Thang Lang La Pass and I Bet you will never get such a wonderful landscapes and natural mud hills made by rains. But "YES" Once You Will start from Leh on sarchu Road A Sign Board will welcome You Saying - There is No hotel No Petrol pump till 225 kms. So Be prepare for it. (That I am Talking About 2008 Hope Now Things have Improved!) Any Ways I My Self is a Good Driver and Fond of photography if suits to rediff.com I would like to share those Ladakh n even My Goa Rare Sunset Pics with Them. Tell you Henestly With All My Due Regards to NV These Pics BY NV are Very Ordinary. Wishes. Naseem Alam.

"10 photographs of Ladakh that will blow your mind away!" Where has this "municipal school" English come from? The phrase is "blow your mind" NOT "blow your mind AWAY". AND "The Shanti Stupa, also called the Japan Stupa locally, is one of the highest point in Leh city." Where are these semi-literates coming from? Is there no one checking what finally goes out? "The SS, locally called the Japan Stupa, is one of the highest pointS in Leh city." "Of the highest points in Leh, the SS is one." Does no one there know "good" English? Or is it all "chalta hai"?
The Indian Himalayan Corps needs to be especially created with this in mind.
To defend India's mountainous frontiers against Chinese intrusion aggressively and recover all of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, Gilgit, Hunza and Baltistan.
These operations need to unfold if there is another Kargil type intrusion by Pain the near future.
The Indian Himalayan Corps needs to have half a million mountain trained troops who have trained extensively with the Gebirgsjäger of the German Bundeswehr and also with the US army 10th Mountain Division in Alaska, California and Gulmarg and the number of seasoned troops needs to double every year. They need to be recruited from our Mountain folk living Kumaon, Garhwal, Nepal, Kashmir and Ladakh who are already acclimatized to living and working at high altitudes.
An entire air-fleet of the Indian Air Force with Glider borne troops and troops trained in Wing-Suit assisted descent into enemy territory need to excel in terms of tactics and operational finesse.
They need to have more than a dozen high altitude air-transports which can land 200 tanks on the Deosai plains in Baltistan.
They need to be equipped with night vision goggles and also llama and mule packs for supply trains.
They then need to have their sights set on Khaplu, Haldu, Skardu, Astor, Karimabad and Gilgit and entire stretch the Karakorram highway.
All these cities need to be captured in a well planed and coordinated campaign which will last a mere three weeks.
