Zigzagging Through

Tributaries zig zag down the mountain and merge into a larger river

During summer months as the snow melts, it gives rise to numerous rivulets which zigzag down the mountains to form streams and culminate into rivers. The valleys of Zanskar are full of such small streams originating in melting snows .
During summers, a lot of wild life makes these meadows their home due to plentiful grass and water.
While riding through the Suru Valley towards Rangdum, I came across this small valley branching off on the side with several small rivulets zigzagging though the greens.

Horses running free in the high altitude meadows of Zanskar, Ladakh

The valleys of Zanskar are full of meadows irrigated by melting glaciers. During summers, a lot of wild life makes these meadows their home due to plentiful grass and water.
While riding though one such meadow, I came across a herd of horses galloping across the valley.I had a split second to stop my bike, fish out the camera and take this shot.
There was a bigger white stallion who was leading the pack. Unfortunately that did not get captured in this frame.
