 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Ladakh has been called of many names, land of Lamas, Peaks of Lamas, Moon Land, Broken Moon, The land of passes, the land of monasteries as of monasteries. As the names suggest, Ladakh was completely inaccessible during winter to the outside world, in summer Central Asian traders passed through and activate Ladakhis to involve in some economic activities. However, only a few of them exchanged their agricultural products with Central Asian traders. Chang-pa, Shyamma and Zangskaris were known popular traders from Ladakh who carried Pashmina, wheat, sattu, wool, butter, dry cheese etc. and exchanged these with carpet, gold, and precious stones etc. Ladakh was an independent kingdom. In 1842 general Zorawar Singh annexed it into the Dogra Empire. In 1947 it became an integral part of India later Ladakhis were declared S.T. in 1989, in 1995 president of India approved the demand of 'Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council Act.' Thereafter Ladakh Buddhist Association time and again demanded for 'Union Territory' status of Ladakh. In summer 1974 Ladakh was opened for foreign tourists. Annually Ladakh and Kargil festivals are organized by J&K tourist department in order to increase tourist influx in Ladakh. Such steps are not only increasing the living standard of Ladakhis but also help increase the foreign exchange reserves. Author, who came in Ladakh in 1981, visited many places in Ladakh. This book is based upon the work and a study over a long period of time together with related travel and his stay in Ladakh.
