In July 2010, we went trekking in north India through "Baba pass area" in the Himalayas. After 6 days we arrived to Ladakh close to a village called Leh.
At night around 2 AM (6 August), hotel personal wake us up, and asked us to be prepared for quick evacuation because of the imminent arrival of a terrible flood. After while we didn't have to be evacuated thanks to the fact that we were located on the upper side of Leh. This "fact" saved us from the flood.
In the morning, after waking, we saw the terrible spectacle of a wiped city, under water, wrecked houses and cars in unnatural positions, habitants in desperation, in search of survivors and counting corpses of family and friends.
Here are photos taken a couple of hours after the disaster.
These pictures are dedicated to all the people who lost their lives & all the citizens that didn't rest a minute in order to save lives.
