This unique pictorial guide is the result of a long painstaking but productive collaboration between Himalayan Map House and Bhakta B. Raskoti and Rita Ale, two passionate researchers who have literally grown up in and traversed the lush green valleys and uncometable terrain of the Himalayas. They have jointly documented all major species of the Himalayan flowers from the low lying valleys at 200 m to above the snowline region at 5500 m.
This is the first book of its kind that provides all information, with high quality photographs in true colors, from the family names, their habitat, flowering time and season to details about their distribution. This book will be a major guide for tourists, tourist guides, naturalists and students and an invaluable reference tool for floriculturists and nature enthusiasts.
