18 January to 5 February 2018
My partner Jools and I are about to depart on a photographic tour to Ladakh with Crooked Compass. There will be about ten of us altogether and with luck we may be able to photograph some snow leopards.

Saturday 20th January: Delhi
- Lanes of Old Delhi
- Pigeons and flowers
Monday 22nd January: Leh

- Alchi Monastery
- Likir Monastery
- Rivers and Mountains
Thursday 25th January: Rumbak (Hemis National Park)
- Camping near remote village
- 4 to 5 hour walk
- 3,800 metres = 12,500 feet

Friday 2nd February: Walk back to Leh
Saturday 3rd February: Overnight in Delhi

I may make a few posts while I am travelling. That depends on available time and internet connections. I will have no internet in Hemis National Park and it may not be too good in Leh.
However, I will make temporary posts either when travelling or when I return. Links to those posts will then appear in this Itinerary post.
It is likely to be some time though before I process all images and make final posts. I will probably first make final posts for Atacama in 2015 and Cuba & the Caribbean in 2016.
