Fully revised third edition of Charlie Loram’s practical guide to low-impact trekking in this high-altitude region of India. The spectacular natural landscape of immense mountains, wild deserts and deep gorges, combined with a thriving Tibetan-Buddhist culture makes Ladakh (‘Little Tibet’) one of the most fascinating destinations in the Himalaya.

Rupshu
Zanskar
Western Ladakh
Also includes – Stok Kangri trekking peak (6153m/20,188ft)
All the practical information you need – planning your trip and getting to Ladakh from North America, Europe, Australasia and other parts of Asia; arranging a trek - whatever your style of trekking, from a short backpacking trip to a fully-guided expedition
Minimum impact for maximum insight – how to travel with sensitivity and awareness through a fragile region
Background information – history, culture and language
Delhi, Manali and Leh – street plans, what to see, where to stay
