I am heading back solo to Ladakh during the first 2 weeks of September for the Ladakh Festival and wondering if any CSers heading there during that period. Visited there with a group of CSers and love it.

If anyone happened to there, maybe we can meet up there for coffee or some shooting if circumstances permit.

Please do not hesitate to pm me.
Thanks
Paul

I also heard ladakh is a beautiful place, been wanting to go there but could not find either time off or people who wants to travel there.

Sept is a good time with the festival - but too bad - unless I quit my job.

I would like to do a trip to Xin jiang - not this year though but next March/April wl be the target. Wl hv time to plan + to polish up my skills in photography
