Photograph of the week: Untouched Leh

Leh is the gorgeous Himalayan Region sitting like a crown in the north of India. The place is undoubtedly stunning. Moreover, it is a practically untouched, pristine natural habitat. The mighty mountains change colors with the seasons while the waters are sparklingly clear. This particular snapshot manages to capture both the beauty and purity of Leh. The striking contrast of the buff and the blue is only enhanced by the impressively spotless mirror image in the crystal clear water.


Thank you to Stephen Rogers JoGuru for permission to re-produce the image.

    “Moreover, it is a practically untouched”…
    I was shocked and thought that it was created in photoshop but realizing that its not touched its believable.. We humans destroy so much beauty in this world..

    I went to Leh last summer. It is unbelievably beautiful. The water at Pangong Tso is pristine. The mountainous road is one of the scariest to drive on.
    Can’t wait to go back!

    Sounds and looks beautiful, Nupur… is the town worth a visit and is there much to see of Leh Palace or is it all in a poor state now?

    There are a few things worth the visit. The Shanti Stupa is beautiful and has some great views. Leh Palace is in decent condition. Surprisingly clean.
    There is a Hall of Fame maintained by the Indian Army just outside the town
