The guide to India is a useful handbook to an extraordinary country. The introductory colour section includes photography of the country's many highlights in the 42 Things Not To Miss section, from boating on the backwaters of Kerala to taking in a cricket match at the Oval Maiden in Mumbai. It provides comprehensive accounts of every attraction from the vibrant cities and elaborate temples to Himalayan peaks and palm-fringed beaches. There is also practical advice on activities as diverse as camel trekking in the Rajasthan desert, rafting on the Indus and hiking through the lunar landscapes of Ladakh. The listings sections provide hundreds of insider reviews of the best hotels, hostels, restaurants, bars, shops and museums in every city and village. The authors also give an informed insight into India's history, politics, religion, music and cinema, providing a valuable context to the reader's trip.

fifteen years has led to meaningful adventures for hundreds of adventurers and a very fulfilling career for me. Providing fantastic service and clear communication are my strengths, and forging meaningful connections between us, and between you and my country, Nepal, is my aspiration. Some of the greatest compliments I have received are: “You go to him as a client, and you leave as a friend” and “Everything was taken care of to my utmost satisfaction”.
As a provider of 80 unique treks and expeditions in Nepal, the importance I place on your security cannot be understated. All the guides I hire are fully licensed and certified veterans. When you trek with me be prepared for the adventure of a lifetime. – Sanjib Adhikari
