Long Lonely Walk

A monk takes a long lonely walk from Julidok Vilage towards the Rangdum Monastery in Rangdum Valley, Zanskar

Julidok is a small village halfway between Kargil and Padum, a town in Zanskar.
The village is situated next to Suru River and the valley floor is covered with moraine. On one end of the valley is situated the Randum Monastery atop a small hill. I did an impromptu stop of two days in this place. The remoteness and of course the beautiful surroundings were what made me stay.
The residents of the Monastery are quite welcoming and one can spend sometime visiting the inside with its small museum. I for myself used their courtyard for a nice afternoon siesta. Seeing me lie down, an elderly monk was nice enough to give me his shawl to cover myself.
