The Yak Herders of Yaye Tso
Yaye Tso is a fresh water lake nestled in the mountains high above the Mahe village in the Changthang region of Ladakh. Far away from the tourist trail the lake and its surroundings retain their old world charm. I had a delightful experience visiting the place this August and got to spend some time with the Changpa nomads who were camping there.
Trail food for solo hiking and camping in India
In this post I want to start a discussion about the food I carry while trekking and camping out in Ladakh and elsewhere in the Indian Himalayas. My requirements is that the food should be lightweight, compact and most of all healthy and nutritious enough to sustain me for anywhere between a week to 10 days while out on the trail.
