A new exhibition by photographer Dávid Simon shows a magical journey

Ladakh - a region in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir - is called the Land in the Clouds for a reason. On his journey from Himachal Pradesh to Leh, Dávid had to clear five passes above 5,000m of altitude on the highest drivable road in the world.

He crossed rivers on the back of his bike, had conversations with amazingly friendly locals, met the local police force, kayaked in the Indus river, got saved by a military doctor and took hundreds of selfies with soldiers in the highest mountain military base in the world.

An exhibition of Dávid's photos opens in Bangkok on Saturday, March 14 at Restaurant Cajutan near Asoke. for more details, visit the event page.

All proceeds go towards supporting the programmes of Courageous Kitchen, Thailand.
