Approaching Zoji La

We were on our way to Srinagar and had to make our way past the Zoji La. These are photos shot before we started the long journey through the crazy terrain of the Zoji La (also known as the Zoji La Pass). The landscape was out of the world. Jammu and Kashmir truly living up to being a paradise on earth.

This is a rough location of where we were. I did not have any GPS logging device back then. I used to use a Nokia E71, which took forever to lock onto satellites. All these photos are shot using a Canon 1000D. Some of them are HDR photos.
