West Himalaya

The Western Himalayas border the Karakoram mountain system, forming the highest peaks on earth. As in the central Himalayas, the valleys contain deposits from the last ice ages and warm periods. Human influence on river systems and valley shaping is equally evident here.

The basis of these photographs is documentation of research trips, which led to partly remote areas of the Western Himalayas during expeditions of several weeks in 2013. The regions of this archive include the Pangong Tso region, the Ladakh region, and the Nubra Valley.
