Pashmina (also known as Changthangi) is a special breed of long-haired goat, indigenous to the high altitudes (above 3,000 mts) of the Himalayas.­ The sought after Pashmina wool -- legendary for its softness and warmth -- is made with the fur of these goats.­

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 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.­
