Practical and cultural guide to the sights and monuments of Jammu & Kashmir and the mountains of Ladakh, with referenced map, full background information on Indian history, culture and religions, and eating and accommodation tips.
This is a chapter from Blue Guide India: the best guide for the independent traveller to India's art, architecture and history. According to William Dalrymple, who wrote the foreword: "I can vouch for its accuracy and novelty – the Indian guide which reaches the long-forgotten wonders ignored by other guides, and the best possible guide to off-the-beaten-track India."
Written by the BBC's Sam Miller. Highlights include Srinagar and Dal Lake, the Kashmir Valley, Ladakh and its capital Leh, and the landscape and Buddhist monasteries of the Zanskar range.
