Full-length portrait of two Ladakhi men in the modern-day state of Jammu and Kashmir, taken by an unknown photographer in the 1890s. Ladakh, with its high mountain ranges and deep valleys, is the most northern and remote part of India. There are many monasteries in the region where Tibetan Buddhism is practised. Leh is the capital and was the centre of a number of important trade routes for Central Asia throughout the centuries. This is partly the reason that the people of Ladakh come from a number of different ethnic groups.
