New title for July 2014
Possessing an ethereal natural beauty that lingers on the mind long after you leave, India’s Jammu and Kashmir state is exotic and intoxicating.The lotus-bedecked lakes at Srinagar, Mubarak Mandi palace, overrun by monkeys and birds, and Kardhung La’s spectacular Himalayan views will leave you in little doubt that you’ve stumbled across paradise on earth.
The most comprehensive standalone guide to Jammu and Kashmir state, Bradt’s Kashmir is the ideal companion for the curious traveller. With detailed coverage of treks in remote Zanskar, tips on spotting the region’s elusive snow leopard and a beginner’s guide to Urdu and Ladakh, it helps reveal the character of an area back on the tourist scene after decades of instability.
Sophie and Max Lovell-Hoare have lived in India and subsequently worked across Asia. They are also the authors of the Bradt guides to Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Sudan and South Sudan.
