Himachal Pradesh, known as dev bhumi or land of the gods, beckons to nature lovers, seekers of solitude, adventure enthusiasts and the casual tourist. In this extensive guide, Minakshi Chaudhury reveals, not only the well-known sights and sounds in Himachal, but also the lesser-known places, found in nature's lap, among rivers and streams, hill-tops and deep green valleys. These unexplored regions hold many seductions for the traveler, for their natural beauty and strong, vibrant folk-culture. Lavishly illustrated, this book is an invaluable guide for lovers of travel. It includes details of locations, accommodation nearby and highlights of each destination. In addition, it familiarises readers with the geography, history and culture of the region. About the Author Minakshi Chaudhry is a freelance writer and journalist, who has developed a deep love and knowledge of her home state, Himachal. She has worked with the Indian Express and Outlook Traveler magazine, as well as penned various books on Himachal including Exploring Pangi Himalaya: A World Beyond Civilization and A Guide to Trekking in Himachal: 65 Treks and 100 Destinations.
