Driving Holidays in the Himalayas Ladakh
Driving Holidays in the Himalayas Ladakh
Description

Foreword

Driving Holidays in the Himalayas is a series of books that endeavour to give the reader a glimpse of many exciting, exotic locales that can be easily accessed by road and hopes to provide enough insight to make your trip a comfortable and memorable one.

This book explores Ladakh, and briefly, the adjoining areas of Himachal Pradesh and Sringar, while the others take you through Zanskar, Uttaranchal, Himachal & Sikkim.

These books especially focus on travelers who are found of driving, have their own wheels (two, four - or even hired will do!), and love the mountains. Given the time constraints of our lives today, each book is designed to cover a fair degree of terrain in a week to ten days. Although it does not aim to visit every place possible in a region, it certainly traverses a reasonable cross-section. It reflects the author’s own preferences of picturesque places to visit and also makes dining recommendations.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
