Lets continue…

After Khardung La pass we entered Nubra valley (Coldest Desert of India)
Still no sign of Lichens anywhere…

    True expedition, Foldscope is reaching every corner

    These pictures just melt my heart – we are transformed for a second to feel the breeze and the wind!! And the heavy back packs you must all be carrying to sustain yourself.

    The only solace I give myself is that you did not have to lug a giant heavy microscope on your back – and you had a foldscope at hand. I am curious if you got a chance to pull out and share foldscope with local folks (nomadic or otherwise) you met along the way. In my travels – it’s always a great conversation starter 😉


    1. Thanks Manu, will be heading back to the Himalayas 2 weeks from now. Will try it…
