I ‘ve just returned from my scouting trip for two photo tours that we’ll be offering next year. The Jim Cline Photo Tours 2018 Ladakh, Heartland of the Indian Himalaya Photo tours, will be offered in June and (due to popular demand) a second trip in July.  Please use the links to learn more about each tour.

Ladakh had always been on my radar, but up until last month, the opportunity to go had not arisen. Now, back from Ladakh, just hours ago, I find myself giddy with excitement to tell and show you the amazing photo opportunities, both in cultural photography and landscape photography.

There was no internet availability to speak of while traveling in Ladakh, so for the next week or so, now that I am back in the land of broadband internet, I will be sharing several blog posts totaling over 100 pictures, to give you an idea of what there is to see and experience in this remote, fascinating and beautiful area of the Indian Himalaya.

I hope you’ll enjoy the photos that I have to share and I encourage you to come along on what is sure to be an astonishing photo tour!

    Nice photos, Karl, of such an amazing part of the world. It seemed to me that it was a place where the struggle for survival was more challenging than any other place on earth, yet, at the same time, dramatically beautiful. Lucky will be the photographers who get to join you on your future Ladakh tours!
