Photographer's Note

With the hairpin bends down to Lamayuru, surely one of the most picturesque and dramatically situated villages in India, if not in world.

Masterpiece of road design and engineering, the Hangru loops, popularly known as jalebi bends-carry the Kargil-Leh road down from Lamayuru to Khaltse. KUDOS to Border Road Organiztion, under Indian military who construct these roads. This is the point, virtually whole of the stretch can be seen in all its serpentine length of bends, loops and whorls.

Some more info: There are total 23 such bends. There is one particular point from where one can see all those bends (hard to capture thoug). The color of mountain is due to the alloys and minerals it has got. One can see not just gray, but red, russet, dull purple, ochre, pink and even green.
