The classic Lamayuru-Padum-Darcha trek takes you to this magical Shangrila: the trail crosses seven mountain passes to reach the vast Zanskar valley, and then an eighth to negotiate the mighty Himalayas.

Milestone Himalayan Series' Zanskar is a comprehensive illustrated handbook for this classic trek with a detailed 1:150,000 foldout map and over 80 color photographs.

The three-week trek can be done in two stages and the guide comes packed with exhaustive day-by-day description of both the stages:
Lamayuru - Padum
Padum - Darcha

There is, in addition, practical advice on planning and organizing the trek with a chapter on how to tackle medical emergencies.

Plus background reading on the people of Zanskar -- their culture and history -- and an introduction to Tibetan Buddhism, the religion they mostly practice.
