Description About the author
In the 1950s Himalayan trekking was not as popular as it is now. The network of roads deep into the Himalayas did not exist and the hills were more pristine and undeveloped than they are today. The approaches to the high peaks were on foot from the road heads which were then at a comparatively low altitude, and routes to the interior took a considerably longer time than they do now. Even today, the extreme northwest area of Sikkim and some hidden valleys and peaks of Garhwal are not frequently traveled or well-known. In this context Kekoo Naoroji's extensive treks in Garhwal and Sikkim present a fascinating written and pictorial record of the area. The spectacular black-and-white and color photographs are beautifully composed to reflect those early days of exploration and the onset of interest in the Himalayas among Indian mountaineers and trekkers.
