In May 2008, James Wilson, a long-time friend, and I trekked through rugged canyons, rock-strewn mountains, and plains for five days, starting at Likir Monastery and ending at the famous Alchi and Lamayuru Monasteries. We stayed in guest houses along the way and enjoyed a desert-like topography quite different from our Himalayan treks. Here is a very small sample of our adventure.
