About The Book

Ladakh, the Last Shangiri La, the land of moonscopes and monks, of clear skies and vast horizons, is among the most sought –after destibnations on earth. Its millennia –old tradition of Buddhism only adds to its appeal, with age –old monasteries perched on rugged hills, the air resounding with esoteric chants.

Buddhist Trail in Ladakh's best known monasteries, including Thiksey and Hemis, Alchi and Lamayuru, as well as to lesser known gompse such as Stakna, Matho, Likir, Phyang and and Rizong. We also journey to the charming Nubra valley, and into barren Zanskar, a world of haunting beauty. The Guide includes excursions to the palaces of Stock, Shey and Basgo, as well chapters on Leh and Ladakh's fascinating wildlife.

Beside, we provide detailed information on when to visit if you want to witness the famous chham dance, where to do your holiday shopping, eat some hot thukpa and Tibetan bread, or undertake an adventure trek, or bike ride.

With over 1000 stunning photographs, glossary of Buddhist terminology, and an up –to –date practical information section, this is an invaluable companion for both the interpid tourist and the armchair traveller.
