May 28, Sai Chand rated it liked it Shelves: The book provides detailed account of Ladakh – History, Geography, Culture, Religion and monasteries. By the time one finishes the book, one is sure to remember some names of the kings, the sects of Budhism, monasteries, some places and the routes etc. The map provided at the starting and ending pages proves very useful, when reading about Geography.

One needs to refer to these on a frequent basis. Some lines seem to be borrowed from other sources. Aug 14, Abhishek Achal rated it liked it Shelves: A great book on Ladhak.
