Ladakh Photo Gallery

On the desert lands of mystical Ladakh.

Ladakh, often referred to as the “Small Tibet”, is the remote land beyond the Himalayan range, on the Northern territory of India. It shares indeed a lot of commun features with its neighbour, the Tibet, as a commun history and culture. It is a wide desert land of high valleys located somewhere between 3000 and 6000m high, counting some of the highest passes of the world. “Ladkh” in Tibetan, actually literally means “The Land of High Passes”.

A land of an infinite beauty, attracting the most adventurous souls in its most remote parts. Its has a quite demanding access that gives it the value of a hidden jewel. The Jewel of the Mountains. For the most courageous, its does offers lands of an incredibly rare beauty!

Majestic dimensions, wide mesmerising valleys of multicolours rocks, traditional cultures, mystic monasteries and yogis.
Ladakh gives all the essential to the Travel Photographer :
beautiful Landscapes, fascinating Travel Portraits, traditional and authentic Local Life for “Street Photography”, and mystic elements for Travel Storytellings.

Whether you climb up here on a bike (for the most audacious), on a bus (for the strongest stomachs) or on a plane (for the bravest altitude fighters), you get very well rewarded. And trust us, you’ll wish to come back, again!

View from Tanglang La in Ladakh on the Leh-Manali highway - A Lorenz Berna Travel Photography of India
View from Tanglang La mountain pass at 5,328mt. The Leh-Manali road is a very challenging road where it is common to find snow or water crossings, glacial melts and occasional landslides on the way. It crosses several high passes at over 5,000 metres which can get travellers to experience relatively serious altitude sickness.
