Passing Through Mountain Passes - Ladakh, India
This photo captures our group walking along the first mountain pass in the Himalaya Mountains. We traveled along the passes by jeep, van, or travel bus, along slivers of roads meant for compact vehicles, and dodging cliffs and edges the entire ride. The structure on the right of the photo is called a stupa, a symbolic structure within Buddhism, a source of fascination and learning while abroad. Stupas were scattered throughout the land, along mountain passes, roads, and within every village on the Tibetan Plateau.
