Seeking respite from a novel that has hit an impasse Vikramajit Ram accepts an invitation from his friend Manoj Bawa to join him on a drive to Ladakh. It is the start of the Himalayan summer of 2009 the high mountain passes have just opened for the season. As the journey progresses Vikram find that the quirky company at the wheel and the otherworldly beauty of this Shangri La are the perfect fix for his jaded senses. On a high literal and metaphoric on the Highest Motarable pass the world he abandons his doomed work of fiction to write instead of this journey.

The outcome derives its title from the Ladakhi words for lake and pass.

Weaving together elements of art and architecture natural history and biography, Tso and La is a tribute to this enigmatic and deeply musically corner of India. Against a backdrop of uncontainable grandeur Manoj and Vikram find prayer flags and child month magpies and wild glacial lakes and surreal sand dunes. Four week and 8,200 kilometres later the friends return home to Bangalore. Once throws himself into a new job the other embarks on a new journey of words.
