An evocative and entertaining story of travel in this remote and amazing Himalayan mountain country, one of the last places on earth where a traditional Tibetan Buddhist community still survives intact. Andrew Harvey - western, sophisticated, intellectual, but with the gift to be simple, travelled there. Then his real journey began. "Ladakh is the land of high passes; my experience of Ladakh and its people was to be, for me, a pass into another awareness of reality."
"Should be in the backpack of every pilgrim in search of himself." The Listener.
"A book of ecstasy as well as travel." Geoffrey Moorhouse.
"A remarkable evocation of another life." Peter Ackroyd.
"An exceptional book, one whose magic is compounded by a singular blending of the wondrous and the commonplace, the sacred and the hilarious." Washington Post Book World.
"Even the most blemished readers will feel that they could improve their spirituality without really trying if they spent more time in Ladakh." Martin Amis.
