This is an illustrated travelogue of a trip along one of the most dangerous, but, also one of the most scenic highways in India, from Manali to Leh.

It recounts the various events that unfold during the 5 day trip from the author’s perspective; the sights, sounds and challenges he encounters as he and his friends embark on an epic road trip in the Himalayas.

Read on to find out more about the preparation, the itinerary, the route, the food, the terrain, the people, the risks and finally to understand how a 16 day trip was reduced to a 5 day trip for the author.

I received this book to give an honest review.
So I was asked if I would review it and of course I said yes even though it is not my normal reading material. This is a quick read and it actually has real pictures in it. This author took a trip and we see what happened to him during the 5 day trip. Now not a lot happened on the trip but we do get to see what places he visited and how he handled the sickness that would overcome him at times.
There is not much more to say as it would be giving away the entire story if I say more. If you want to read about his trip to the Himalayas then grab this short story.
