Skywatch Friday - A Ladakh sight near home!

A raised high ground.

Surrounded by rich green corn fields.

The golden turrets of the monastery glowing in the afternoon sun.

Overcast sky.

The contrast was striking!

The setting looked almost the one you see in Ladakh.

Clouds in place of snow clad mountains and corn fields replacing barley fields.

The Monastery was magnificent.

But this was closer home. In Bylakuppe. In Karnataka which has the largest Tibetan settlement. We have been to this place many times. The drive from highway to golden temple is always a lovely sight. Especially in the months of August - September when the vast fields of corn stalks standing shoulder high on the undulating terrain. Miles and miles of it. All due to hard work by the Tibetans.

We stopped on the road when we noticed this. It looked as if we were in Ladakh. But closer home!

Ladakh has always been one of my favourite travel destination in North India. The culture and tradition followed by the people of Ladakh is so different from the rest of the country. Being in Ladakh is always a memorable experience for any traveller.
