Hello all, during my visit in Spiti Valley last august, I came across a book called The Wonderland Himachal Pradesh (or something like that). It was property of the homestay I was staying at, not in a bookshop. I would like to buy a copy, since I thought it was a great insight into the culture, history and geography of this state. Do you know where I could buy it online with the option of international shipping (I am in Italy)?

I am also open to suggestions on any other interesting reading about Spiti Valley and Himachal Pradesh.

Thank you,

You may google the name. You will find a lot of options where you may get your copy.

Kulu by Penelope Chetwode is a great read, but very rare & quite expensive;

It seems to be "Currently Unavailable" at both Amazon and Flipkart. Maybe you should try on Ebay ?

BUT, they don't deliver internationally:

We do not deliver orders to international locations currently.

2018 Edition (Rs.₹ 560 Exclude Delivery Charges) available at Shunya Foundation Platform:

The latter also only offers options for delivery in India. Perhaps get it sent to a friend in India?

That's it! I found an earlier edition, but i guess this is the most recent one.

I'll figure something out, or maybe this is a sign I should go back to India soon :-)
