From the jacket

Manimahesh is a prose text that represented a different genre and travelogues have always drawn readers, as they generally combine documentary data, topical information and autobiographical impressions. The first hand experience of the traveller on the trek is of immense benefit to the intending traveller and if the traveller happens to be Umaprasad, it becomes a two-in-one journey, a conducted trek through the Himalayas and an intellectual bonanza of facts, figures and philosophic discourse. In Manimahesh we find very interesting descriptions of the Himalayan hill tribes, especially a description of the Gaddis and the Kinnors and Kinnoris. This book has an immense value as resource material for researchers, anthropologists, Himalayan trekkers and casual readers.
