'Yatra is a very powerful means of self-purification, and if the pilgrim has eyes and ears to see and experience the beauty and majesty of the nature, then his capacity to contemplate explodes within himself and he reaches hitherto unknown depths.'
~ Swami Chinmayananda
About the book
True to the Master's quote, Journey to the Himalayas is a word-by-word recount of the unique encounters on an 18-day journey through the Himalayas by two brothers. Presented in the form of a pictorial travelogue with breathtaking pictures, it not just describes the beauty of the Himalayas and Himalayan folks, but also reveals how a journey to the hills can catapult into an inner transformation.
Starting from Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh and concluding at Tapovan (14,600 feet), you will get a glimpse of the serpentine roads and narrow paths, where even the heroes get a cold feet. The book promises to take the reader to the Majestic Himalayas with the help of words and pictures.
It is a 108 pages full colour hardbound A4 size coffee table book. It is an excellent read for those who love to travel and those who love the Himalayas. It is also a good book for gifting and we have been receiving orders from educational institutions and corporate for gifting it to their guests.

What's so special about this travelogue?
Swami Chinmayananda's travelogue My trek through Uttarakhand was the inspiration for the 18-day journey undertaken by two brothers - Vinay Nair and Veeraj Nair. So the book is also a dedication unto Him. The book is a fund-raiser for the project Chinmaya Pradeep which is a first-of-its-kind permanent outdoor multi-media and multimedium park in India which will display the teachings of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda. Support this project through the purchase of this book.
