TRIBALS LADAKH

Ladakh division of Jammu and Kashmir state is a remote and resource poor region that witnessed little change in the technological level over centuries. It could be considered as an important study area because it is microcosm – a model of human adaptation to an extreme environment. The present study deals with ecology, human settlements and amenities available in cold desert Ladakh in relation to its population structure and health environment.
