Zanskar to Ziro: No Stilettos in the Himalayas emerges as an infusion of luxuriant landscapes and rich history, a successful evocation of a sense of place. The book is further enriched by echoes and allusions from all that the author and her co-traveller have read, as well as high-quality visuals. The acceptance that comes from having lived half of one’s life has allowed the travelers to wade across difficulties with a sense of humour—often self-deprecating—that twinkles through the book.
