Travel – Ladakh, India

I am interrupting my Friday OBAMA AND picture series today to share with you a picture show of Ladakh, India (and also because the White House photo stream needs to upload some more fun pictures).

Ladakh is situated in India’s northern state of Jammu and Kashmir. The sparse landscape and political disputes in Jammu and Kashmir have kept tourism to a minimum in Ladakh compared to other parts of India. At the same time, the slow urbanization that is penetrating this region has started to threaten its centuries old food and lifestyle traditions.

I have been dreaming of visiting and volunteering in Ladakh for a long time. Come with?

Neel, thanks for sending this to me.
