Zanskar-Ladakh travelogue, 2000

Pidmo to Skiumpata

From Pidmo, where we slept the first night, we crossed two passes the next day, heading for Lingshed. This is the view from Anuma La. If I had had a wideangle lense, you'd better be able to appreciate the cloud alleys, which is my favourite mountain "roof"!

 Looking down at Lingshed, a village that has made good use of the water coming down the northern mountainside.
There were trees in the alleys, as you can see below.

 

 There was some kind of Buddhist teaching going on. These toddlers have better things to do, though!

 The women are listening carefully to the teachings. We slept just beyond Lingshed, a terrible thunderstorm breaking forcing us (luckily) to stop for the day and seek shelter. The next day we descended to Skiumpata, which you see below.
