Luminous Ladakh Photo Tour Workshop
Our Luminous Ladakh photo tour workshop offers a completely unique and compelling array of image opportunities. Ladakh is a magical land that abounds with otherworldly high mountain landscapes, often punctuated by green oases, crystal blue lakes, and rich, verdant valleys. Exotic ethnic people and portrait ops are also plentiful, including with blue or green eyed Dards. Nomadic Pushmina goat herders roam grazing lands, and Tibetan traders with their two-humped Bactrian camels travel vast dunes and winding trails to their next outposts.
A 90 minute flight from Delhi, Ladakh is surrounded by the two highest mountain ranges in the world – the greater Himalaya and the Karakoram, the collision of which you’ll be able to photograph from Turtuk. Ladakh is often called “Little Tibet”, and is very much reminiscent of the Dalai Lama’s homeland before the Chinese. Thiksey Gompa looks like a smaller Potala Palace in Lhasa. Stunning ancient monasteries adorn hilltops with jagged mountain backdrops. Lamas and young monks wear distinctly Tibetan maroon and yellow robes, and blow those crazy long horns! If you always wanted to visit Tibet but probably won’t, come to Ladakh…
Your fearless leader on this high adventure is award winning photographer, Swarup Chatterjee. Swarup is always great fun to travel and work with, and one of the most creative snappers we know. Check out a very interesting recent article about him on this top photography website.
