A travel book with a difference, this text takes readers to one of the world's most popular tourist destinations, showing them facets of the country which visitors very rarely encounter. Combining black-and-white and colour photography, each chapter tells the story of a fast-disappearing culture or way of life. The chapter, "The last of the polyandrists" introduces us to a small village in the Himalayan foothills where women take up to five husbands, while "The hilltop temple" tells of pilgrims flocking to shave off their hair as an offering to the gods.
