Travel photo of the day
Hidden in the Hindu Kush - Tibetan Smiles
- Anika3, CNN iReport producer
We were a team of 14 Americans traveling in the nomadic regions of Ladakh with only one goal: to learn about the people in this breathtakingly beautiful region. We spent time in this particular Tibetan village with the children as they washed their clothing in the river that flowed from a natural hot spring. School uniforms were hung, lining the water bank after the children and several caretakers scrubbed and wrung the clothes dry. The village consisted of about 60 Tibetan families and was about three miles from the Ladakhi nomadic school where we had been earlier that day. The diversity of the people in Ladakh is indescribable. Nepali and Tibetan refugees, nomadic peoples and children, and military bases filled with an array of men from all over India are just some of the many faces found of this region.
