About this book

Language: English

Resources on the Speleology of Himachal Pradesh (India) deals with the karst and caves of the most northern Indian Union State. 128 sites – mainly karst caves but also some man-made caverns – are described in detail. 28 other caves are described from the Arki area, where the first European post-WWII caving excursion to South Asia was conducted by a team around E.A. Glennie in 1970. The majority of these caves still awaits surveying. The report has an in-depth 15-page bibliography and over 230 explanatory footnotes.
