In Appril i travelled alone to the region of Ladakh in the Indian Himalayas. My aim was to reach to one village called Turtuk just in the border of Pakistan and India. I needed to get a permit to the goverment to acces to this area. Aftet 2 days i got it but the due to the snow was imposible to get there. In Turtuk lives Balti People. They have not ever mixedwith anothers ethnicity. I wanted to show the human biodiversity.
