Who needs Alan Whicker when we have our very own intrepid traveller John Cross!

John will be giving his annual talk about Ladakh (no, I’d never heard of it either!).

In John’s words;

“I will be talking about his trips to a little known region of the Indian Himalayas, Ladakh.

Situated high on the Tibetan plateau, Ladakh, Land of the high passes or Little Tibet is aptly named. A desert for most of the year access to the country by road is only possible during the summer months as snow blocks the main road for much of the year.

This isolation has helped preserve the traditions of the region and lifestyles of its rugged and independent inhabitants.”
