It is a place of few resources and an extreme climate. Yet, for more than a thousand years, it has been home to a thriving culture. Then came development. Centuries of ecological balance and social harmony are under threat from modernization. The breakdown of Ladakh's culture and environment forces us to re-examine what we really mean by progress.
