The Kangra Valley Rail is a wonderful way to explore the rustic charms of Kangra in Himachal Pradesh. The journey from Pathankot to Joginder Nagar takes almost 8 hours, following the line of the snow-clad Dhauladhars through landscapes that move from the sub-tropical to the alpine, through time and history. The book is a travelogue/guide that introduces the reader to the variety one encounters from the pilgrimage sites, the forts and ruined palaces of kings immortalised by the local bards and miniature painters, people, local architecture, cuisine and the story of Himalayan tea, and the exiled world of Tibet. Printed Pages: 140 with 109 colour photographs.
