Over the Hump

A snapshot from the Himalayas

By / July 2013

A small train of two-humped, Bactrian camels make their way through the high desert of the isolated Nubra Valley, deep in the Indian Himalayas. Although most of these camels have been domesticated, it is still possible to find groups of wild Bactrians roaming these barren, inhospitable dunes.
