 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Riding the Himalaya is a unique travelogue of a himalayan odyssey-a car-trek starting from the saichin glacier across the entire himalays (kashmir, ladakh, Garhwal, Kumaon, Nepal, Bhutan and Sikkim) right up to kibitho, the easternmost oint of the himalayas. This team of car rallyists (mostly ladies). wildlife experts and photographers went through mountain deserts, tropical forests and the highest motorable road on the planet. The adventures were remarkable-a horrendous rock-fall in Uttarkshi, a riot in badrinath, pakistani guns opening up near kargil, and river crossings with scorpios hitched precariouslyon country boats. This well-researched text gives a bird's eye view of the history of remote regions, monasteries and temples, and vivid accounts of game sanctuaries. Keki N. Daruwalla has burrowed into nineteenth-century chronicles and provides glimpses of what life was like in the mountains then. Both Keki N. Daruwalla, the author, and ashok Dilwali, one of the finest photographers of India, are mountain lovers. Riding the Himalayas has been written in memorable and luminous prose, paralled by some of the finest photographs of the himalayas.
