This book is English translation by Ashok Meghani of Himalayano Prawas travelogue in Gujrati by Kakasaheb Kalelkar. Considered a classic of Gujarati Literature, Himalayano Prawas is more than a mere chronicle of a Himalayan pilgrimage. The author has used it as a vehicle to roam the vast landscape of Indian history and culture. The physical journey described here happened in a two-month stretch in 1912.

This chronicle was published in a series of articles starting in 1919 and continuing for several years. Published in the book form, it has seen six editions and continues to sell even today. It has been used as a textbook in many University curricula for students of Gujarati.

About The Translator:
Ashok Meghani, an engineer by profession, took early retirement and has been devoting his leisure time to literary activity. He has translated three other Gujarati books into English with The Himalaya: A Cultural Pilgrimage being his first foray into the non-?ction world.
