Those are photos of my June 2009 Motorcycle road trip in the Himalayas (Manali, Leh, Kargil, Srinagar).­

I was riding a Royal Enfield "Bullet" 500cc Machismo, that I rented in Delhi.­

Photos of cows, and related bovine animals (e.­g.­ calves, oxes, bulls, water buffaloes, yacks).­

I have not included photos of butchered cows (body-parts and meat, i.­e.­ beef).­ Those can be seen in my Meat Markets series.

Photos of the trip to Pangong Lake via Chang-La Pass (Ladakh, India).­

The water of Pangong lake is salty, which gives it a very blue color.­

The Pangong Lake (Pangong Tso) is located in Eastern Ladakh, near Tibet, in the Himalayas.­

Parts of the Pangong Lake area are in a disputed territory between India and China.­ These photos were taken in the area controlled by India.­
