Title Review

Popularly known as the ‘roof of the world’, Ladakh had remained a largely unknown and mystical land until the recent past—mainly because of its inaccessible location, inhospitable terrain, and restrictions imposed on tourism. However this land of passes, peace and serenity, has a large networks of excellent black top roads with huge tourism infrastructure, today. This meticulously illustrated book with over 500 fascinating colour photographs is an authentic and at once absorbing narration of the land, culture, people, religious, and lakes, mountains, glaciers and other geographical attractions of Ladakh. The book is a must read for scholars interested in geology, ecology, history, anthropology and archaeology of Ladakh and also a compelling invitation to this amazing part of the world for one and all. It is based upon author’s decades of field study in the region.

A qualified medical professional, Dr. Tilak Ranjan Bera is an avid nature lover. He has explored many remote areas of India and has written about them in his books which are popular among researchers as well as lay readers.
