Travel & holiday

Ladakh wears many faces: high, gaunt mountains creep up to flat-roofed, white-washed houses; ice-covered chortens lie in the path of red-robed lamas and monasteries cling to hilly footholds. But behind the face lies a society that has painlessly fused Islam and Buddhism, and an economy that has turned inhospitable terrain into an agricultural asset. Complimenting the Ladakhi for these achievements, Ladakh takes contemporary travellers through the ?Land Beyond the Passes?. Accompanied with striking visuals, it charts a comprehensive account of the region, outlining its history, culture and lifestyle and livening up the whole with a judicious mix of the local flavours of polo matches and archery contests.
