These are photos and stories of my trip to the Himalayas in India, including Ladakh and Kashmir. You'll get to meet my Kashmir and Indian families, see the last of the pure Aryans living in a remote Himalayan village in Ladakh, see night sky, star trails, and Milky Way photos, and much more.

In the Valley of the Aryans, these isolated Himalayan people call themselves the last of the Aryans. Theories abound, but no one seems to know how they got there for sure. Ladakh, Indian Himalayas.

NOTE: As always, you may interact with me concerning all things photography (or discussions of why hummus and falafel rule, what's the best beer to pair with Indian food, night sky and star trails photography, long exposure stuff, best places to travel, etc.) on my Facebook page, which is http://www.facebook.com/kenleephotography. Please stop in and say hi, kick off your shoes, and stay a while!!!!
