Books For The India Explorer - Iv: Ladakh

See the right side panel for links to earlier posts in this series. This time, a list of books for those interested in Ladakh.

Ladakh - Crossroads of high Asia by Janet Rizvi: Rizvi's book is a scholarly work with detailed study on every aspect of Ladakh, including geography, people, living and changed seen in today's Ladakh. The author's deep understanding and knowledge of the region is evident when reading the book. It is a good book for those who want to get a deep understanding of the region, but doesn't go well for light reading.

Ancient Futures by Helena Norbert-Hodge: This is yet another book written by an author who has understood the region well. Hodge has been coming to Ladakh for more than 25 years, since the time the region was opened for tourism. The book gives an excellent preview of Ladakhi culture, while giving a lot of emphasis on the troubles brewing in the region due to influence of the modern society.

A Jounrney in Ladakh by Andrew Harvey: This book has plenty of personal experience of author travelling in Ladakh.

Trekking in Ladakh(Trailblazer) by Charlie Loram: This Trailblazer Guidebook is more or less like bible for those who intend to trek extensively in the region. With very detailed maps and descriptions, it is a must keep book for everyone who is keen on trekking in Ladakh.
