 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Ladakh is a wonderland of mesmerising, sweeping vistas. With its barren rugged mountains, crystal clear skies and intriguing visions of a lost Shangri-La, Ladakh is a very special place. Beyond the Himalayas, on the edge of Tibet, it is a hidden paradise for trekkers, tourists and travellers.

Above all, Ladakh is a unique land in which to visit and explore what remains of the Tibetan Buddhist culture. Soaring to the sky and clustered around jagged crags are intriguing, fairytale monasteries. Such places still reverberate with the sound of chanting monks, eerie chambers of silent devotions and the haunting tones of long horns, often heard at the many festivals.

This book describes the history and background to this Buddhist land, and is complete with monastery plans as well as details of the deities in the chapels. Illustrated also with vivid colour photographs, the book aims to fill the void between casual observation and further knowledge. The fascinating world of Himalayan Buddhist culture is to be observed right here, among the magical monasteries of Ladakh.
