Ladakh is full of natural wonders. Amidst seemingly endless swathes of barren landscape are patches of astonishing greenery. Descriptions of lakes, passes, valleys and several famous and not-so famous rivers make this book a delightful read. Ladakh is a land of natural wonders. Amidst its seemingly endless swathes of barren landscapes, are patches of astonishing greenery; its lakes, passes, valleys and rivers add to its beauty. Romesh Bhattacharji's Ladakh contains a wealth of information on every aspect of Ladakh: its terrain, history, people, customs and the changes it has been through the past forty years. It also explores the ways in which Ladakh has adapted to modern life, taking to new professions such as medicine, engineering and writing. This immensely readable book is relevant not only to academics, but also a pleasure for the general reader.
