- The Himalaya - 



 'Chasing angels or fleeing demons, go to the mountains'

- Jeffrey Rasley


The dramatic west face of Gumbajaron (5800m) commands the landscape across the watershed of the Tsarap river in the southern Zanskar range, Indian Himalaya 



Mountains of the mind: sunrise over the Zanskar range of the Indian Himalaya seen from a light aircraft en route from Delhi to Ladakh



Prayer flags flying in afternoon light on the Zatra La (4600m), one of the few reliable crossings from Lukla into the remote Hingku valley, Solukhumbu, Nepal



Commanding an awesome position above the glacial water of the Zanskar River, Stongdey Gompa was founded in 1052 by Lama Marpa Lotsawa, and is the second largest monastery in the Zanskar mountains



A convoy of trucks travels north on India's Manali-Leh highway, one of the world's highest motorable roads, which crosses the barren mountains of the Zanskar range into Ladakh's Indus valley



One of the presiding spirits of these mountains, a yak makes his way towards distant pastures in the Rombuk valley, Zanskar range, Indian Himalaya
