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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
