Detailed Product Description
India, 2002, 1st edition. 384 pp, 32 color photos. Light blue cloth hardcover with dust jacket. New.

With 20 (of 42) chapters on mountaineering, hill walking, rock and ice climbing and other adventure sports, this is an excellent new overview of the magnificent Indian Himalaya. Covers Sikkim, Indian Mt Railways, Hill Stations, Himalayan Shrines, and even a chapter on environmental issues by Edmund Hillary!
 
The mountains of the Indian Himalaya, including the Kailiash Range, Garhwal, Himachal Pradesh, Bhutan, Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Nanda Devi, Zanskar, Karakoram, Pir Panjal, Dhauladhar, Shivalik, Kumaon, Mount Meru, Sikkim, Assam, Western Ghats, whose magnificent sights have enthralled countless men and women over the ages, have inspired many to turn their gaze inwards in search of their true self. They also hold a special significance in the cultural ethos of India. Besides the Himalayas in the north, there are several mountain ranges crisscrossing the rest of India. These are the Aravallis, the Vindhyas, the Satpuras, the Western Ghats and the Eastern Ghats. They hold great reserves of natural resources and are vital to the economy of India.
 
Written and compiled by India's most eminent mountaineer Captain M.S. Kohli, who in the early seventies pioneered the concept of Himalayan trekking on global basis from the Air India platform, the book serves as a guidebook for an individual who want to use the mountains of India for pleasure or spiritual fulfillment, or to feel the sheer thrill of adventure. From his unique position of being associated with the Himalayas and other mountain ranges of India, and their different aspects of adventure, tourism and environmental conservation, Captain Kohli has brought out a very special book on this unique gift of nature to India.

This book explores the tourism aspects of the Mountains of India in general and provides usable information on their geography, pilgrimage centers, hill stations and adventure options available to an individual. Finally it draws attention to the need for conservation of their delicate ecosystem for future generations. It is extremely rare to find such a wealth of information in one volume, which makes this book unique.
