Entry Description

Ladakh's Stok Valley, a popular destination in summer, has never been documented in winter. This is in part necause of its altitude -- 5,400m above MSL, and in part because of the great deposits of snow it receives. This year, I mounted an exploratory mission to document the beauty of this land in snowy repose, beginning at 5,300m at extending my search for images to 6,000 metres.
