Now considered a classic among readers interested in Tibetan Buddhism and pilgrimages of the spirit of all kinds, A Journey in Ladakh is Andrew Harvey's spiritual travelogue of his arduous journey to one of the most remote parts of the world--the highest, least populated region in India, cut off by snow for six months each year. Buddhists have meditated in the mountains of Ladakh since three centuries before Christ, and it is there that the purest form of Tibetan Buddhism is still practiced today.

Seeking respite from a novel that has hit an impasse, Vikramajit Ram accepts an invitation from his friend Manoj Bawa to join him on a drive to Ladakh. It is the start of the Himalayan summer of 2009; the high mountain passes have just opened for the season. As the journey progresses, Vikram finds that the quirky company at the wheel and the otherworldly beauty of this Shangri La are the perfect fix for his jaded senses. On a high - literal and metaphoric - on the Highest Motorable Pass in the World, he abandons his doomed work of fiction to write instead of this journey. The outcome derives its title from the Ladakhi words for 'lake and 'pass . Weaving together elements of art and architecture, natural history and biography, Tso and La is a tribute to this enigmatic and deeply mystical corner of India. Against a backdrop of uncontainable grandeur, Manoj and Vikram find prayer flags and child-monks, magpies and wild asses, vast glacial lakes and surreal sand dunes. Four weeks and 8,200 kilometres later, the friends return home to Bangalore. One throws himself into a new job; the other embarks on a new journey of words.

Andrew Harvey, an Anglo-Indian novelist and poet, expands on the spiritual transformation that he described in part in Journey in Ladakh. Beginning in 1978 when he first met Meera, the Indian woman who would be his Master, Harvey (who at the time was teaching literature in England and the US), struggled for-- and against-- enlightenment for nine years. With other disciples he followed Meera, who he came to see as Ma, the Divine Mother. In India and then in Germany, under her guidance, he confronted his confused sexuality, his attachment to intellect and reason, his pride and his fears. Harvey's precise, passionately told story will touch sceptics as well as seekers.

This guidebook gives detailed descriptions of eight different treks across the Ladakh and Zanskar, and Markha Valley. Ranging from moderate difficulty to very demanding, each trek is broken down into multiple stages, and has information on difficulty, available accommodation and access, as well as the many combinations and alternative routes open to exploration. Known as Little Tibet; for both its landscape and culture, Ladakh lies at the northern tip of India. The region is bisected by the great River Indus and neighbours Tibet and Kashmir. This quiet corner of the Himalayas has developed a strong trekking culture over recent years for adventurous trekkers. Trekking in this remote, high-altitude region is extremely challenging, as paths are not signed and there are only a limited number of villages. However, its magnificent landscape (a huge area full of limitless trekking possibilites), hospitable people, rich heritage and limited number of tourists make Ladakh an amazing destination. The guide includes background information on local culture, history and religion, as well as all the planning detail you need on crucial aspects such as environmental responsibility, health and safety in the mountains, trekking practicalities and preparation for altitude.

In his latest book of photography Benjamin Hargreaves brings us a celebration of travel with images taken during his journeys through the United Kingdom, Europe, India, Australia, the USA, Cuba and elsewhere. The book uses images of roads, tracks and waterways to evoke both a literal journey and a metaphorical sense of life as a journey. On a Road, On a Journey transports readers through 45 photographs to other worlds such as by a red road in Australia, on a ferry in Bohemia, crossing the Splugen Pass into Italy on foot or on a rough track in Ladakh. The book highlights how images of roads have meaning for us and how this is part of the attraction of such images. Within the book, Benjamin also includes an introduction highlighting the importance of roads and journeys in mythology, poetry, song and literature. He explores how these ideas have become important symbols in the way we think. Readers may just want to go travelling, and feast their eyes, or they may be prompted to think about life’s journey.
