More than a travel guidebook, Forever Ladakh is a tribute to the people of the region, and the treasures they have safeguarded throughout time. In line with that ethos, the photographs in this guide are almost entirely the work of local photographers, and several present-day artisans, athletes, and professionals of Ladakh are also featured througho...ut the book. Forever Ladakh is the definitive guide for the new millennium. Based on countless interviews with locals, and the latest in academic scholarship, this travel guide is a fun yet penetrating snapshot of todays Ladakh. Here you will find crucial visitors information, as well as folklore, local histories, and details on legendary sites, never before published. This is the result of immeasurable grassroots support in the Ladakhi community, and is part of a greater effort to celebrate the diversity and treasures of the Himalayas. Despite Ladakhs remote location in the high-altitude mountain desert of northern India, a new and infectious wave of interest in its culture and history has emerged. With that, adventure is abounding. In a region where the history is still being uncovered, and where all nooks have yet to be charted, the magic of discovery still lingers. With Forever Ladakh, a compendium of special access information, you will be guided through the best parts of the region in refreshing detail, and with a sense of the regions true spirit.
