the height of living

Ladakh is a fantasy of the subconscious. You don’t just make plans and go there.

Ladakh is a mystery – a mystery that everyone wants to unravel, but very few rarely do. They say that a car is pulled up the road by magnetism. They say that the river flows in a direction opposite to expected. They say that you can have one foot in the sun and get sunburnt and have the other in the shade and get frozen. They have said a lot.

Whatever follows does not really solve the purpose of solving the mystery but is just a mere attempt at a few short stories involving the place and the people. The stories would unravel while you raft down the Zanskar river, while you have lunch at the confluence of two rivers, while you hike through the cold desert or while you watch a festival.
