Wandelgids Trekking in Ladakh | Cicerone

Cicerone wandelgids van Ladakh met acht uitdagende trekkingen. 

 
This trekking guidebook gives detailed descriptions of eight different treks across the Ladakh, Zanskar and Markha Valley in northern India. 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 Himalaya 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 possibilities), 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.
 
Activities
Moderate to very demanding trekking.
 
Seasons
Unlike other parts of the Himalayas, Ladakh is not normally hit by the Monsoon. Therefore summer (June to September) is the best trekking season.
 
Centres
Access is through Leh, the capital of Ladakh. The treks travel through towns and villages all over the Ladakh region, as well as the Zanskar sub-region and the Phukthal and Karsha monasteries.
 
Difficulty
High altitude, lack of lodges and restaurants as well as the remoteness of the region make trekking in Ladakh a rather challenging activity. Moderate to very demanding treks have been covered in the book. A number of local agencies can help organise the trip and make the trek much easier.
 
Must See
The rich Tibetan-style culture, remote mountains, high passes, serene monasteries and Ladakhi people. See K2 from the Kanji Pass. Cover the classic Darcha-Padum-Lamayuru trek. Trace snow leopards and venture up deep river gorges.

Reisverhaal Himalaya | Michael Palin

Michael Palin tackles the full length of the Himalaya in this terrific number one bestseller. Having risen to the challenge of seas, poles, dhows and deserts, the highest mountains in the world were a natural target for Michael Palin. In a journey rarely, if ever, attempted before, in 6 months of hard travelling Palin takes on the full length of the Himalaya including the Khyber Pass, the hidden valleys of the Hindu Kush, ancient cities like Peshawar and Lahore, the mighty peaks of K2, Annapurna and Everest, the gorges of the Yangtze, the tribal lands of the Indo-Burmese border and the vast Brahmaputra delta in Bangladesh.
 
Facing altitudes as high as 17,500 feet as well as some of the world's deepest gorges, Palin also passed through political flashpoints like Pakistan's remote north-west frontier, terrorist-torn Kashmir and the mountains of Nagaland, only recently open to visitors.

Wandelgids Garhwal Zanskar Ladakh | Rother

Seit Jahrtausenden übt der Himalaya eine enorme Anziehungskraft aus: Für die Einheimischen sind seine mächtigen schneebedeckten Gipfel oft Wohnsitze von Göttern, während viele Wanderer in ihnen die weiße Krone der wohl beeindruckendsten Bergwelt der Erde sehen.
Dieser Rother Wanderführer konzentriert sich auf die beliebtesten Trekkinggebiete des indischen Himalaya: Garhwal, Zanskar und Ladakh. Sie vermitteln dem Wanderer einen tiefen Einblick in die unglaubliche Vielfalt des höchsten Gebirges der Welt. In Garhwal verlaufen die Wege durch dichte Urwälder, über blühende Wiesen oder entlang kristallklarer Bäche, mit atemberaubenden Blicken auf weiße Bergketten. Zanskar und Ladakh hingegen gleichen einer Steinwüste mit vereinzelten grünen Oasen. Die extreme Trockenheit sorgt für ungetrübte, kilometerweite Sicht von den teils über 5.000 Meter hohen Pässen auf die faszinierend schroffe Gebirgswelt.
Der Autor Ralf Hellwich hat die Routen so ausgewählt, dass für jeden Geschmack etwas dabei ist, von einfachen Tagestouren bis zu anspruchsvollen mehrtägigen Treks und der Besteigung des über 6.000 Meter hohen Stok Kangri. Auch kulturell interessierte Wanderer kommen nicht zu kurz, da viele Wege an bedeutenden hinduistischen Tempeln oder buddhistischen Klöstern vorbeiführen. Neben gängigen Wanderrouten - oft traditionelle Pilger- oder Handelswege - enthält das Buch auch einige eher selten benutzte Pfade. Präzise Streckenbeschreibungen, detaillierte Wanderkärtchen und aussagekräftige Höhenprofile, Informationen über Anreise und Infrastruktur sowie Trekkingtipps ermöglichen die eigenständige Planung und Durchführung der Touren und einen erlebnisreichen Aufenthalt im indischen Himalaya.

Reisgids Kashmir India | Bradt Travel Guides

Voor vele landen net zo goed, zo niet beter dan de Planet. Beduidend soberder uitgevoerd, maar ook met veel informatie voor backpackers en met veel kaartmateriaal. Een aanrader!.

Himalayan Kingdoms, Buddhist palaces, mountain treks and spectacular scenery entwine in newly accessible Kashmir, introduced by Bradt in the first detailed guide to the region including 16 pages of high-quality photographs. Sophie and Max Ibbotson lived in India 2006-07 and have worked in both India and Pakistan. They have previously authored the Bradt Guides to Tajikistan, South Sudan and Uzbekistan.

Encompassing a vast stretch of land from the lush Kashmir Valley to the mountains and epic wilderness of Ladakh, the area now covered by the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir has long astounded visitors with its beauty. Marvel at the views from the roof of the world at Khardung La, trek along the frozen Zanskar River, stroll through the Eden-like Shalimar Gardens, take a shikara ride through the lotus-bedecked lakes of Srinagar and join the monks at Thiksey Monastery for early morning prayers by candlelight. After decades of instability, Kashmir is back on the tourist scene and keen to make up for lost time. This, the only standalone mainstream guide to the state, makes the ideal companion whether you want to white-water raft on the Indus River, relax on a houseboat or explore Buddhist culture at shrines up and down the region.
