The course starts in the Gulf of Khambhat and drives up through cities and villages in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, and Kashmir up to Leh, Ladakh. Open to people related to architecture - students or graduates, registration ends Saturday 14 March. Follow the link for information on how to sign up: CEPT Summer School
