Photographer's Note

I took this shot on my way to Gurudongmar Lake (at 18000 ft or ~5500m). I met this Indian soldier who was walking all by himself in that altitude with very thin air and difficult conditions. I have no idea how long he must have walked and where he was going.. He seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. I decided to capture him in the backdrop of the mountains that he was protecting for us, all Indians. The mountains separate India and China and he is one of the thousands who sacrifice so much to stay at this difficult place and do his duty.
