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.

I have been ordering from your site for several years and am always pleased with my orders and the time frame is lovely also. Thanks for being such a wonderful company.
Delia, USA
I recviced Book Air Parcel(Nadi-Astrology). I am glad to see this book. Thankx. Muhammad Arshad Nadeem Pakistan.
Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
