Monastery of Light

The plane is just about to take off from Leh airport. From far, through the plane window, i see the glimpse of light shining on the Spituk Monastery and it just lasts for few seconds then the light is gone. Mountains dominate the landscape around the Leh as it is at an altitude of 3,500m. The whole town is surrounded by mountains spread out like no end with three parallel ranges of the Himalayas, the Zanskar, the Ladakh and the Karakoram.
