Bird's eye glance at Ladakh in winter: the Leh - Srinagar - Delhi flight

     Views from the GoAir G8-196 from Leh (IXL) to Srinagar and G8-190 Srinagar (SXR) - Delhi (DEL) flights by Airbus A320 on Jan the 19th 2015. That was my following air journey from Leh to Delhi and the second in winter but this was the first time I flew via Srinagar. This means that I had the first chance for the bird's view of the Western part of Ladakh. It was a 35 minutes of a fantastic flight between Leh and Srinagar!

The Indus just above Alchi
Indus and the Zanskar Mountains. There is Stakspi La roughly in the centre of this picture. The Alchi village with its famous monastery is on the right below.
The view towards the Stakspi pass - probably one of the hardest starts of any trek I have ever did (I crossed it from the Alchi side twice)
The Alchi village where the monastery with famous paintings is located
The Zanskar Mountains

The Himalayas. It is Nun & Kun massive (above 7100 m a.s.l.) on the right in distance, most probably

The landscape near to Lamayuru. Compare this photo.
The Himalayas. Kun (7077m a.s.l., the one which is nearer to the aircraft) & Nun (7135m a.s.l.) - the highest peaks of the main ridge of the Great Himalaya Range in Ladakh and the highest peaks of the J&K state
The main ridge of the Great Himalaya Range - the geographical border of Ladakh region. It is over 7000m high mountain massive Nun Kun with its peaks Kun (7077m a.s.l.) & Nun (7135m a.s.l. the one which is farther from the aircraft).
Nun (7135m a.s.l. on the right) and Kun (7077m a.s.l.)
Mountains and glaciers of the Great Himalaya Range and the Suru Valley below
How to stop think about trekking and exloring if you see this kind of views?! Himalayas. It is the Kashmir Valley to the right.
