‘In Mahendra Singh’s hands, Ladakh and Spiti come alive with breath-taking pictures and an engaging
text studded with succinctly handled information and interesting little titbits from the past. This is a
book that really makes one wonder how much the study of the world around us can be elevated by
texts like this one, texts that blur the lines of genre and introduce places to us like delicious secrets just
waiting to be explored.’
