Ancient trails in Zanskar

Ancient trails in Zanskar


The ancient Buddhist kingdom of Zanskar is hidden deep in the western reaches of the great Himalayas. For most of the year the high passes remain inaccessible because of snow, making the frozen Zanskar River the only way of transport by walking. Villages nestling high up on cliffs, the greenest fields where peas and barley are grown and ancient monasteries are just some of the attractions on this spectacular trek
