Photographer's Note

Hello dear friends,

This is my another post of journey to Ladakh. I shot this beautiful place when I started my journey from Kargil to Padam, This is Rangdum and it is situated in between Panikhar to Padam. Padam is the district capital of Zanskar.

Rangdum is in a valley situated near about 12000 ft above the sea level, in an isolated region of the Suru valley in the Ladakh region in the state of Jammu and Kashmir in Northern India. On one side are the colorful hills while on the other side are snow capped mountains and glaciers, notably Drang-drung.

Rangdum is located midway between Kargil and Padum. It is about 100 kilometers from Kargil. The road conditions are very bad near Rangdum. A JKTDC bungalow is available at Rangdum. Restaurants and hotels are also available here. There is no access to electricity, phone or internet.

When I crossed Rangdum this snow line was continuing upto Padam, I shot this beautiful snow line on the side of motorable road, distance near about 500 fts from the road.

I hope you enjoy it,

with best wishes to all,
