Zanskar and Ladakh, the golden year 2001

2001 in Ladakh will be remembered by myself and Joel -
and hopefully all the people who trekked with us - as one of the best years of our lives.

These are mostly Joel's pictures.

Yes, Kim trekked most of the season with us and began leading for Project Himalaya the following year.
