There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Major problem for me is the brief manner treks are covered, by the end a story or reader’s interest develops, the journey ends. The chapter on Arunachal, Darjeeling, and Sikkim were way too short and much better and detailed travelogues are available for free on Indiamike or BCMtouring, etc.
Nevertheless the chapter on Nubra Valley and Spiti was good, same was Kashmir and Darma Valley, but rest of the chapters are just too short or reveal very less about the place.
1 star extra only for supplementary material.
This book has the balanced collection of geographical overview(I like zoom level idea), interesting stories around the place, and some useful tips for the trekker.
After the first "what & how of the book" section, which said about the chapters can be read in any order, I jumped the chapter 7 about flying Lamas. Couldn't resist my curiosity. Really enjoyed narration and information in there.
