A beautiful book! The Illustrated Atlas of the Himalaya is a full-color, comprehensive atlas of land and life across the whole length of the Himalayan, Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountain chains, from Afghanistan and Pakistan through India, Nepal and Bhutan.
Published by the University Press of Kentucky, the atlas has been built from data compiled with the help of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). It is generously supplied with maps, charts, tables and photographs.
The Illustrated Atlas of the Himalaya is a large-format book that would fit nicely on a coffee table. But it is also a scholarly work, and a valuable reference for anyone interested in the Himalayan region.
