[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is how Indus river looks from the top as you approach Leh, landing at 12,000 feet ASL in thin density airfield. The mountains in the background are from Zanskar range. Sorry for the poor quality image....
The Delhi-Leh route, for instance, is one with spectacular views of snow-covered mountain ranges winding in tiers until the horizon. Beginning with striated pinnacles of rock and snow, they grow into massive ice cream cones and then give way to the cold desert strewn with bare, brown hills that form the tail end of the Tibetan plateau in Ladakh. Distinctive monasteries, sprawling villages, lush green fields watered by massive irrigation projects and the township of Leh appear under the aircraft along with its shadow racing along the burnt sienna and russet plains.

A wonderful shot dear doctorů. Such panoramic views I watched many times from AN-32 which was once almost my regular mode of travel.

Hi Subhash,as you know i like a lot the gallery that you're building about this beautifulls mountains! This is another impressive aerial view,colors and details very perfects,thanks a lot to show us this beauty,have a nice weekend,Luciano

It is good to see an aerial view of this area. It doesn't look very lush and green here. It is interesting how much of our Earth is fairly barren. So much of the United States is the same.

It certainly has that remote oolk..I am forwarding this to my fiend next door whose father did some duty there back in the 1980s'...again..your photos are amazing..

Hello Subhash,
Good diagonal composition with excellent detail on the mountain and the land. A little bit of noise, but excellent picture. You have very good landscape in your gallery. Thanks to discover this corner of the world to me.
