Baltistan is the region where Baltis come from. It is also known as Little Tibet and is a mountainous region on the border of Pakistan and India in the Karakorum mountains. Gradually, when Baltis got involved in the trade, their caravans used to go through the tough mountain terrains on the Silk Route. From Skardu, they used to bring rock salt; rice came from Srinagar and apricot from Kargil. Efficient riders and porters, Baltis have helped Central Asian traders and later on European travelers on Himalayan routes. A photograph of the Silk Route by the Indus River in Kargil.

There is no eligibility level or any other criteria to call yourself a photographer. Right from the top photographers having great vision to a person clicking a simple photograph of a loved one, just like my sister, @kajalkothari who clicked this picture 😍
For me, everyone who clicks is a photographer.
There is never a bad photographer, only the perspective changes from person to person.
So HAPPY WORLD PHOTOGRAPHY DAY to everyone out there who plays with the shutter button 📸.
Be happy & proud with what you are doing but don't fill it with unnecessary ego because we are just capturing what's already created by Him.
