  1. Diarmid Diarmid says:

    One of the few books about Ladakh written by a British writer with a connection to the region The first half covers the landscape and wildlife then moves on to a history of Ladakh The second half covers the present of Ladakh and it's potential future and ends with a description of the most notable gopmas or Buddhist monasteries There's a map in the endpapers though it's not very detailed and includes a footnote saying the the boundaries shown on this map are neither authentic nor correct The writer has an obvious fondness for the region and it's people and the book is good introduction for readers unfamiliar with Ladakh

    The book provides detailed account of Ladakh History Geography Culture Religion and monasteries By the time one finishes the book one is sure to remember some names of the kings the sects of Budhism monasteries some places and the routes etcThe map provided at the starting and ending pages proves very useful when reading about Geography One needs to refer to these on a freuent basisThe only boring part is about the Flora and Fauna for a non birdanimal watcher like me Some lines seem to be borrowed from other sources
