Travels in Kashmir,Ladakh & Central Asia
The name "Central Asia" correctly describes, in a geographical sense, the heart of that continent. It is separated from the river- a system of the Aral and Caspian Seas, on the west, by almost impassable mountain-ranges; from the affluent of the Indus and Ganges, on the south, by the chain of the Mienliin, the rival of the Himalayas and from the rivers of China to the eastward, by the great Desert of Gobi. A line drawn from Constantinople to Peking and another from the latitude of Cape Comorin to that of the Polar Sea, bisecting the former line, would very nearly indicate the central portion of the region, as also the continent.
