No, not a love letter to a favourite take-away, but an in-depth guide to eight remote and challenging treks in the Ladakh region of the Himalayas, India.
Eight adventurous trekking routes
An essential guidebook to trekking in Ladakh. With detailed descriptions of eight treks in the Ladakh, Zanskar and the Markha Valley of north India, including details on combinations and alternative routes. Ladakh is a remote environment where trekking is extremely challenging, for adventurous trekkers only. Practical information is also included.
Author Radek Kucharski writes passionately in his preface about how ‘enchanted’ he is by this region, having recently spent four months there and written a new guide so others may share his experiences.
The guide is widely furnished with expressive photographs and detailed maps, giving tantalising glimpses into daily life in Ladakh as well as vital information for trekkers. The routes are challenging, but much information is provided about access, accommodation, and the ideal time of year to tackle the routes.
While the routes are certainly not for the faint-hearted, Radek has also included a section on sightseeing in Ladakh, describing festivals, guesthouses and restaurants perfect for some well-earned R&R after a challenging trek.
Just one word of warning, be prepared to be left wanting more, as the author certainly was!
