India, Ladakh photo report


My visit to India, especially Kashmir and Ladakh seems along time ago but when I saw my photos back it was like as yesterday. Here's a photo selection of the people in north India, especially in Ladakh. In 1997, I visited Ladakh and was right on time to enjoy the Ladakh Festival. Here's a selection of photos I made.

The spectacular festival contained a full cultural show with dancing, music, polo and of course all the high officials were around.

I visited the festival in 1997. It was crazy busy with locals from all over Ladakh. There were also about 50 or so foreigners. We got a special place in front of the crowd so we were able to make good photos.

I still have to find out how I can scan my black & white photos because these are even better than the color photos. It's basically the expression on the faces of the people that make the difference.

Although some consider the festival a sole tourist attraction, it's in fact a lot more. The festival

All India Tours

India is not a country, it's a continent. After spending more than a year it's safe to say I have seen some of India but I have not seen all of India.

The same goes for tours in India. They only show you slices of what the country offers. Good, VERY good slices:
