‘Land of High Passes’ – Ladakh
Breathtaking Views of Ladakh
Even the freezing temperatures of the colder climates didn’t deter our model from looking pretty for our cameras in a Sulakshana Monga pink dress at Pangong Lake.
Beautiful lush green meadows of Ladakh, towering mountains on the horizon blend to form a picturesque landscape. The model strikes a pose in a bright yellow kaftan by Vandana Sethi.
The scenic vistas on the road to Pangong lake provide the perfect photo opportunity. The model is seen sporting a long sleeved printed top designed by Vandana Sethi with purple tights and boots.
The rugged terrains at Hunder, Nubra valley stand in sharp contrast to the orange empire waistline silhouette worn by the model.
The rugged landscapes of Ladakh surrounding the Thikse monastory was ideal for the next shot with the model posing in a Vandana Sethi outfit.
