This Travel Guide takes the traveller through exceptionally magnificent landscapes, the world's youngest mountains sheltering some of its oldest monasteries. From the near perfect beauty of Lower Kinnaur to the austere splendour of Lahaul-Spiti, the guidebook charts both the majesty of the setting and the strength of spirit and faith that has allowed for habitation, and travel, here.

The great monasteries, such as Lahaul's Guru Ghantal, Spiti's Tabo, Dhankar and Kye and Kinnaur's Nako are presented in depth, and there are also chapter on the state's Buddhist-Tibetan enclaves, Dharamshala and Rewalsar.

Chapter on Manali and Shimla present two gateways to the Trail, via Lahaul and Kinnaur respectively.

There are chapters on wildlife, nature parks and sanctuaries, and adventure sports such as paragliding, river rafting and trekking.

An up-to-date Practical Information section contains information required for the traveller to India and Himachal Pradesh: visas, embassies and high commissions, air, trains and road connections, where to stay and where to eat.

This highly visual Travel Guide, lavishly illustrated with over 140 photographs, is a perfect companion not just for the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveller.

Marie, USA
I just got the package delivered. The books look in good condition from outside. Thanks again. It is always a pleasure doing business with you.
Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
