19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The worst road in Ladakh

On a three day taxi ride to Leh, in Ladakh, we had to pass through this terrifying road with no guardrails and a very relaxed driver!He loved to pass trucks on a curve in the road. I was ready to die that day, but we got to Leh in one piece!
