    After we crossed Zero Point on Zojila Pass, the landscape drastically changed. Vegetation became sparse. Barren mountains, hallmark of Ladakh region, started showing up. The views were breathtaking, especially because of good amount of fresh snowfall.

    Gumri greeted us with more colorful mountains. It has an army base and a cafe named "Cafe Gumri".

    We moved towards Dras. Views remained majestic with one side of the road having colored mountains, the other side having mighty snow capped peaks and glaciers. This is also very amusing to see the snow clad and barren mountains next to each other, separated by just a few hundred meters.

    Most of the photos were taken from moving vehicle. I just kept clicking. You don't have to compose or frame. Whatever you shoot, becomes a composition. I was just awed by these jaw-dropping vistas and kept shooting.
    Road condition was fairly okay. At some places the black top weaned-off, but that did not cause us much discomfort.
