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.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
Rita Wason
I got my order today. It was well packed and looks lovely.
