Schools across Ladakh are closed from December to March. Kids are inconspicuously absent from homes in the summers, they are all busy studying. Memories of an unforgettable trip have come alive while selecting these pictures. Someday I shall return to the families with presents. Till that time, let me share this wonderful time I had, with all of you. I was privileged to be trekking in January and to bring pictures from a cold and almost unbearable Ladakhi winter.
