ABOUT THIS BOOK

With its magnificent terrain, Ladakh has enchanted tourists and explorers over the
years.
Ladakh is a land of natural wonders. Amidst seemingly endless swathes of barren
landscape are micro patches of astonishing greenery. Descriptions of lakes, passes,
valleys and several famous and not-so-famous rivers make this book a delightful
read.
Romesh Bhattacharji’s LADAKH: changing, yet unchanged contains a wealth of information
on various aspects of Ladakh, including its terrain, history, people, native
customs and the changes it went through in the last four decades. It also explores
the ways in which Ladakhis have adapted to modern life, joining professions such
as medicine, engineering, writing and more.
Relevant and well-timed, this immensely readable book is not only helpful for
academics, but also a pleasure for the general reader
