Trans Himalaya 2019 – Hamlets Part 3 – Ladakh

Trans Himalaya 2019 – Hamlets. Part 3 – Ladakh

On my 3000 km long trans Himalayan journey across 120 high altitude passes and as many valleys I passed through 341 remote hamlets in the mountains, some taken straight out of a fairy tale book, most of them showing heart warming hospitality and living sustainable with nature, places where humanity still exists.
