Lying north of the great Himalayan chain, where the tangled knot of the Karakoram, Kunlun and Hindu Kush mountains meet, is a land lost to the world. Beyond the fragrant waterways of Kashmir, on lofty plains where impossibly large glaciers cut through dark brooding granite buttresses, is the land of Ladakh. This account has all the ingredients of a cracking read, adventure, danger, ambition, ego, cultural aspects, warmth, humanity and is truly heartfelt.
