From time immemorial our mountains have played a prominent role in shaping the history and destiny of our country. They have provided an ideal retreat to both pilgrims as well as nature loving travelers seeking a relaxing break form the routine humdrum. They have been the very cradle of vast variety of flora and fauna.
Our mountain ranges have sustained within our vast country a number of natural geographical divisions by acting as umbrellas or wind-shields. This book along with this provides details of people staying in such their culture, festivals, wild life etc.
