A unique map of the Indian Himalaya mountains (scale 1:750 000), detailed maps (scale 1:350 000) of 22 trekking itineraries in 10 regions of north-east India (Kashmir, Ladakh, Zanskar, Lahaul, Rupshu, Spiti, Kinnaur, Garhwal, Kumon and Sikkim), tourist and topographical information and other practical information.
Indigenous knowledge is the inter-generation wisdom of local inhabitants to perform their livelihood operations in most eco-friendly manner under remote, isolated, inaccessible environmental conditions. Since this knowledge is transferred orally from one generation to another, therefore, it is dynamic in disseminating scientific indigenous experimentation; receiving constant stimuli from outside. However, indigenous not only stands for ingrained intrinsic knowledge, it is also amenable to modifications based on latest technical know-how by local inhabitants through native means to suit their daily requirements.
Geography encompasses a wide area of study; each section deserving an entire volume to itself. The book associated with occurrences of flash floods in River Satluj flowing within in Himachal Pradesh. On account of geographical position, climate and geological setting Himachal Pradesh is the worst disaster affected state. To identification of vulnerable areas and assessment of their damages were analysis with most advanced and essential fields of geography, known as Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS). The book aims on make use of different applications of GIS and remote sensing for studying and understanding flash floods occurring in River Satluj. With the help of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System, the classification and mapping of study area is analyzed. These analysis are systematically explained in text and accompanied by copious diagrams, maps, tables and charts

This book is the first attempt to cataloguing the tramp species of Ants from Indian subcontinent with input from Jammu-Kashmir Himalaya, which is already listed as fragile. First attempt have been made to unearth the diversity of Ant species from this region of North-west Himalaya after Bingham 1903. During the study 144 species has been reported from 500 meters to 4000 meters above mean sea level. Check list of the total ant species recorded from Jammu and Kashmir has been given along with high resolution images of the tramp species for identification purpose. Generic distribution along with maps has also been provided.
To understand the present day geodynamics of Kumaun Himalaya, falls in the seismically gap area, a study has been carried out with the help of Global Positioning System (GPS) Geodesy. GPS sites in different lithitectonic units of Kumaun Himalaya were selected and three years of GPS data in campaign mode were generated from each site. The Kumaun Himalaya is showing a range of 10-18 ± 2.3 mm/yr of deformation during the study period and mainly concentrated towards the base of MCT. The crustal strain, evidenced by the presence of microseismic activity of the area, is from Lesser Himalaya to the hanging wall of MCT is showing compressional in nature and changing into extensional towards the Tethys Himalayan segment. The average convergence rate of Kumaun Himalaya during the study period is estimated around 18.66 ± 3.2 mm/yr. Interpretation of results reveal that at present the HFF and MBT are locked with the Indian plate which is evident by only 6.69 mm/yr of horizontal shortening between the IISC and GBPK.
