February 2, 2017. Being a Korean Buddhist, Gilgit-Baltistan has got a great attraction for me. GilgitBaltistan has been center of Buddhism. The Buddhists of Gilgit-Baltistan have left a great amount of rock arts all over Gilgit-Baltistan. In last February 2017, I was on my photographic mission to take some good pictures of historical Rock Art in Gilgit-Baltistan.

Visiting number of villages, I reached an important village of Gilgit-Baltistan called ChatorKhand, Ishkoman. When I asked local people about any rock art in area, they showed me number of rock art. While I was visiting different sites, a villager came to me and told me about an unusual stone with a carved foot it. I rushed to the site with that man and he took me a home and showed me a rock and studied the rock and footprint on it. I took photographs. Then I asked the family elder of the house who owns it.
