This travelogue covers an extraordinary mélange of cultures and landscapes that is South Asia. The tales in this book will provide insight into what to expect in these fascinating breathtaking destinations.

Crisscrossing the Indian subcontinent for three thousand kilometers from north to south, west to east, the author covered an extraordinary mélange of cultures and landscapes that is South Asia. His explorations ranged from the every popular Rajasthan and Kerala to the obscure Kentung in Burma's Golden Triangle, from salubrious Pachmarhi in Madhya Pradesh to invigorating Yumthang Valley in North Sikkim. The tales that he spins in this book will surely provide those who intend to travel to these parts a vivid insight into what to expect in these fascinating, breathtaking destinations.

There are impossible tales told by intrepid travelers; then there are ordinary travelers who find themselves in extraordinary places, meet people who make their journey remarkable, and encourage others to embark on such possible journey. From an impromptu late evening party at 10000 feet in Nepal, to dining with prostitutes in a Rangoon restaurant; from a star-studded night on a beach in the Andaman Islands to an avalanche strewn path in North Sikkim, author Kunal Sinha finds himself in locales and situations that are simply out of the ordinary. Traipsing the length and breadth of south Asia, surviving by a judicious mix of planning and anticipation, his tales are writ with wry humor, and a keen eye for detail that would be missed out in picture postcard.
