      Following the Anglo Sikh War and the Treaty of Amritsar , Jammu and Kashmir, including Ladakh and Baltistan was acquired by Maharaja Gulab Singh. British strategic interest in Baltistan bordering Afghanistan and Russia ensured constant interference in this region culminating in the entire region of Nagar, Hunza, Gilgit and Skardu. Under the rule of Prince Sher Singh (Maharaja in Kashmir), an enterprising general, Zorawar Singh conquered Ladakh and Baltistan in and carried the Sikh flag into territories of Tibet as far as Mansarovar where pitched battles were fought with a strong Tibetan army from Lhasa. Ladakh is also a fragile mountain eco-system, and source of some of the subcontinent’s major waterways. Therefore, envrionmetal management of settlements in Ladakh is of vital importance for India.
