The children running through the peaceful shadowy alleys of Turtuk village, Nubra Valley, Ladakh region, state Jammu & Kashmir, India. Turtuk is a Baltistan village , formerly part of Pakistan until 1971. Today, Turtuk is the last inhabited frontier by Balti Muslims before the border. Baltistan together with Kashmir is a quite politically sensitive area between India and Pakistan. And this is the main reason why Indian government made Turtuk accessible for tourists now (it was forbidden in the past).
