Guide de randonnées (en anglais) - Garhwal & Kumaon, a trekker's & visitor's guide | Cicerone
Topoguide (en anglais) de l'éditeur Cicerone. Description fournie par l'éditeur : Garhwal and Kumaon, known together as Uttarakhand, are the mountain regions of Uttar Pradesh in India, bordering Nepal and Tibet. They are situated almost at the centre of the great Himalayan chain with more than 250 peaks above 5500m high, culminating with Nanda Devi (7916m)
Garhwal consists of a succession of steep mountain ridges divided from each other by deep, narrow glens. A traveler entering Garhwal from Kumaon is at once striking contrast to the milder Kumaon hills.
This comprehensive guide not only covers the trekking but the history and society of the region, flora an fauna, hill stations and temples.
